Learn to properly fuel your body
When you visit our Healthy Living Learning Kitchen, you’ll get connected with nutritionists and health/wellness professionals that are excited to share how food can be used to benefit your body—whether it’s to boost energy, fight inflammation or reduce stress.
The Healthy Living Learning Kitchen is a place where you can:

Get a free snack
Come to a Fuel Break to assemble a quick, nutritious snack to rev up for your workout or recharge after exercising. A kitchen facilitator will be on-hand to help you understand how the snack helps to fuel your body. There’s no need to register for Fuel Breaks—just drop in when they are scheduled.
Have a hassle-free birthday party
Celebrate your child’s birthday at the Y with a Cooking Party—and we’ll handle all the details for the special day. Kids will learn about tasty, nourishing foods with age-appropriate group cooking activities, plus get a primer on kitchen safety. There will be time to enjoy the prepared food together, and open presents too. Birthday parties allow you to pick the food and whether you’d like to include an additional art or fitness activity at the Y.
