Epicurean Hotel, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, and Where Love Grows, a Tampa nonprofit dedicated to ending childhood hunger
For the seventh year, Epicurean Hotel is hosting the “EPIC Summer Cooking Series,” which consists of four hands-on cooking classes for 28 children from the local Boys & Girls Clubs. A partnership between the Epicurean and local nonprofit Where Love Grows, the classes are designed to teach children about healthy eating and how to prepare easy, healthy meals for themselves at home. Each class includes expert instruction by an Epicurean Hotel chef.
The EPIC Summer Cooking Series begins Monday, June 13, with a hotel orientation and tour given by General Manager Shawn Routten. The final cooking class takes place Friday, July 1, which will include a graduation celebration.
Founded by Vicki Anzalone, Where Love Grows is part of the coalition led by Feeding Tampa Bay and the USF Center for Healthy Communities and Food Security, whose goal is to end hunger in Tampa Bay by 2025. Where Love Grows has served more than 28,000 meals and hosted over 1,600 attendees through their mobile/virtual cooking program, continuing to serve through the pandemic. WhereLoveGrows.org.
