Why do your kids need Lunchbox Lessons? Because you need a break!

Managing distance learning and work from home has turned normal upside down. There are little things we can do to empower kids to help their families, give parents a break, and make a difference. Let’s start with teaching them to cook a meal for themselves and you in support of a great cause.

Grab your little ones and join us for a virtual cooking class! Celebrity chef — and kids cooking extraordinaire — Tanya Holland, owner of Oakland’s hot spot Brown Sugar Kitchen, will walk participants young and old through easy, fun menus to prepare at home that will breathe life in to your kitchen and routine.

Help your kids learn to cook and get your ticket today! Each ticket purchase will help RMHC Bay Area provide meals for families with sick children being treated at at Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. Families at Oakland Children’s have experienced heightened food insecurity and economic hardship during COVID-19. This online event will raise funds to expand our popular meal program and help us reach our goal of providing meals five times a week.
