Cooking Class for Kids!

  • Events


Second Harvest Japan is working with the Shangri-la Hotel Tokyo to host a class on baking cookies for single mothers and their children.


The pastry chef from Shangri-la Tokyo will be there to teach children and their mothers how to make delicious, simple treats in their own households, and it will be a rare chance to see a professional pastry chef in action!

There will be a chef and volunteers present at the event, so even if your children are small and need a lot of care, there will be people there to help. We hope that all of you will come out to enjoy baking, community building and relaxing with new friends!

And when the baking is all finished, Second Harvest will provide a goody bag packed with food items for families to take home! But you have to come out and join us to find out what’s in the bag!
