Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club at Schools

When Jodie conducts her Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club activities at schools she typically spends the day with the entire school conducting grade visits and spending time with students making a snack and talking about healthy foods and the Power of a Recipe! 

However, the program has been tailored to specific school needs and is ideal for specific grade visits, Pre-K’s, middle schools, after school activities, high school visits & more…

Food: A healthy snack is provided for the students from Price Chopper the day of Jodie’s visit to the school as part of the hands on activity.  Ingredients are always nut free and are provided in advance to identify any student allergies.

Information for Families: A letter is sent home to parents with information about the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club explaining how to obtain recipes from the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club and the benefits of the NuVal System as well as other supporting materials.

What if I don’t have a Price Chopper in my area & want Jodie to visit our School? Email Jodie to see if a visit can be arranged through your school’s PTA.

Community Events

In 2009, Jodie Fitz created and launched the Price Chopper Kids Cooking Club and has been traveling in a six state region cooking with children and families. She is currently expanding her popular and growing innovative programming so that she can share more food fun, hands-on recipe making and healthy eating discussions with new kid/family communities.

Once a date has been scheduled, Jodie and her team will work through the activity for the day to organize the details for the visit to make sure we’ve met your organization’s needs.

Jodie has successfully developed school based & community programming that is popular, in demand and receives great reviews with consistent return invites. Her program is also great for other organizational groups she frequently visits such as:

  • Pre-K programs
  • Elementary Schools
  • Middle Schools
  • High Schools
  • After School Programming
  • Community/Family Events, etc.
  • Girl Scout & Boy Scout events
  • Boys & Girls Clubs
  • YMCA’s
  • Summer Camps
  • PTA/PTO/Parent Events
  • Fairs
  • Community Family & Kid Activities
  • And, more…

Jodie has been conducting programs successfully for over 7 years. She will work with you directly in regards to allergies and will provide adapted recipes and discussions that are appropriate. All of this is done in advance to her visit to ensure a smooth sailing and successful visit for everyone involved in the program.

Fee schedules range and are based on varying factors; the school’s desired event, distance, number of students, etc. The best way to determine your program fees is to connect with Jodie, provide a specific request and a proposal(s) will be forwarded to you for review based on an assessment of your needs.
