Common Threads News 2019

Over the past 6 years, we have developed such a wonderful partnership with Common Threads that they have made McPherson a Flagship School! We will receive the full suite of granted programming, including after school cooking classes. There are just a few schools in the Chicagoland area and we have been selected.

We will have Small Bites, Garden Bites, a Family Cooking Class and 1 Cooking Skills and World Cuisine Class! Chef Jerry is back to teaching this year!

McPherson is also going to host an Open House for Common Threads and their guests this fall, ideally in October. They will observe a class and interact with students and volunteers as they complete their recipes.
Common Threads regularly invites local stakeholders to see their programs in action as a way to highlight the importance of nutrition education in the community and grow local support for its shared work to improve the well-being of children and families.
