Teens will have the opportunity to learn new recipes at “Teens Eat Local,” next week at the Emporia Public Library.
The event will be from 5:30 - 7 p.m. Wednesday in the large meeting room on the first floor of the library and is a joint effort between the library and the Emporia Farmers Market.
Young adult librarian Tiffany Fay said the event is free and open to all students, sixth grade through college.
“I'm partnering with the Farmers Market to offer kids an opportunity to learn some simple, easy to replicate recipes that they can whip up themselves,” Fay said. "The recipes will make for great spring snacks. Those who attend will have an opportunity to actually make the recipes during the event.”
Teens will learn simple recipes for smoothies, dips and more.
Fay said she hoped teens would come to the library for a night of food and fun.
“The attendees will learn these easy recipes, learn more about the Farmers Market and get market bucks they can spend at future farmers markets here,” she said. “It will also be a good opportunity for teens to get more involved in the community."
The library is located at 110 East Sixth Ave. No prior registration is required.
