Events & Programming
Food Fusion is a fun after-school program for middle school students that teaches how to prepare healthy, delicious meals. Sessions are held in our Tiger Food Lab teaching kitchen, and include an off-site field trip, an on-campus garden field trip and one virtual session.
Each summer the College of Health Sciences hosts Camp CHEF, fun and healthy week-long camps for 3rd through 8th graders. Campers explore the TIGUrS Garden, learn how fresh produce cultivates and the steps needed to maintain healthy plants. Campers prepare nutritious snacks and lunchtime meals to acquire different culinary skills such as chopping, measuring, sautéing and baking. Lunchtime is followed by a nutrition lesson and activity and each day ends with a physical activity to emphasize the importance of exercise. Our goal is for each camper to learn lifelong skills to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
