We are thrilled to announce a fundraiser hosted by Milkflower in Astoria, NY, July 17 thru July 31.

Fundraising kicks off with a Chef-Led cooking class for kids aged 4-12 years old led by Milkflower’s own Chef Pete. Join us for the class Sunday, July 17 where kids will learn how to make the restaurant’s amazing pizza dough in a hands-on cooking class. Kids will then assemble their own vegetarian Kale Pies, learn how the restaurant cooks their pizza and EAT it! The fundraiser kicks off at the end of class and lasts thru Sunday, July 31!

How you can help? If you have kids, sign up for the class! It’s fun! Next, head to Milkflower and purchase a Kale Pizza (as well as other delicious fare). 100% of Kale Pizza proceeds will return to Allergic to Salad. Monies raised during the fundraiser will help us purchase equipment for our public school healthy cooking classes in the 2016-2017 school year!

It’s so easy (and delicious) to help us raise funds — please stop by and support children’s culinary education.

Allergic to Salad specializes in healthy, fun, and hands-on cooking classes. We believe healthy, wholesome food is for everyone, making sure our classes are affordable to everyone! We utilize fresh, local, seasonal, and organic ingredients whenever possible. We are allergy aware — none of our classes utilize nuts, they are vegetarian, many are lactose-free, many are gluten-free. All dishes are fun, simple, flavorful, nourishing, and hands-on. We know that many kids are “allergic to salad” and push tastes beyond the basics in dishes like homemade tomato pasta, spinach-raisin fatayer, sweet corn and tomato papusa, watermelon-tomato gazpacho, rainbow harvest tacos, and more!

Why cook?
Classes provide basic kitchen safety, food handling, food prep and technique, including knife skills. We encourage cleanliness, proper table setting and manners. Cooking is known to increase motor skills, math skills, build self-esteem, self-reliance, and more!

How can you offer affordable classes to the public?
Our classes are currently funded by generous tax-deductible donations from people like you. To make a donation or for more information go to ioby or on our website.
