University of Illinois Extension 4-H Youth Development Program invites all youth and teens ages 8-18 to participate in a free Cooking 101 program on December 14. This program will take place from 4-5 p.m. at the Hoopeston Public Library. Participants will make easy, tasty snacks while learning about food and kitchen safety.

In this program, participants will learn how to make French toast and their own cocoa mix, which makes a great holiday gift for friends and family. Cooking 101 will give youth and teens alike the skills and confidence to cook at home for their families as well as be creative with their food options.
