Black Kidz Can Cook

About Black Kidz Can Cook

A youth advocate, Chef and lifelong North Philadelphia resident,  saw a lack of role models in his community and wanted to reach youth on a different level. His solution?

Black Kidz Can Cook is a program that creates a space where young people of color could learn the principles of healthy eating, survival, entrepreneurship, community service and giving back.

“I believe it takes a village to raise a child and I feel like our community doesn’t live by that anymore,” Barrett said. “We’re educating and empowering not only the kids that are here, but their families and their communities as well.”

This program is solely focused on the enhancement and advancement of our youth. Everyday we challenge them to live up to their full potential. We dont just teach things targeted around cooking and healthy eating but healthy choices, problem solving and survival.
