The Brooklyn Kitchen offers a limited number of field trips to NYC public schools each year as part of our Classrooms in the Kitchen program. We also can accomodate private lessons for schools, summer programs and birthday parties.
Does Your School Meet Our Requirements?
Because we can only offer a limited number of visits per year and there is such high demand, we ask that you meet these criteria before applying to come and visit:
- You are a NYC public school (Grades 1-12)
- Your trip would include no more than 20 students and 3 chaperones
- You can attend on a scheduled Thursday morning
- High school level: Your class curriculum has a special focus on the culinary arts, agriculture or nutrition
- Elementary/middle school level: Your school is located in the Williamsburg, Greenpoint or Bushwick (Brooklyn) neighborhoods.
How to Apply
We are currently booked for the 2012-13 school year. We will be accepting applications again beginning August/September 2013.
What To Expect On Your Field Trip
Your field trip will start with a tour of our facility and butcher shop, The Meat Hook. Our expert butchers will talk to your students about where the meat comes from, and will demonstrate the (almost) lost art of butchering to older students. Then we’ll get started with a hands-on cooking class, where your students will learn a cooking skill they can use for life. We’ve taught kids how to cook pizza, dumplings, fresh pasta and seasonal vegetables! Note: It is required for teachers and chaperones to monitor students with allergies or dietary restrictions during the field trip.
Field Trip Costs
We ask for a donation of $5 per student, made payable to The Brooklyn Kitchen. If your school does not have a field trip budget or any student is unable to pay, we offer waivers upon request so that all students have an equal opportunity to attend.
