  • Jan 31 Kids in the Kitchen Virtual Youth Cooking Club Join Cobb, Fulton, Monroe, and Rockdale County Extension for a FREE virtual cooking club via Zoom! This cooking club is open to youth of all ages with adult supervision. Each cooking club session will feature two cook-a-long recipes that can easily be made at home. On the Friday before each class, you will receive the two recipes and therefore a list of ingredients you will need for the recipe. On the morning of the class, you'll receive the Zoom link. All youth participants must complete a 4-H Code of Conduct and Georgia 4-H Virtual Programming forms prior to participating in the online cooking club. If you have already completed the forms for a previous 4-H program, you do not need to complete them again. These forms will be sent to you after you register and they must be returned prior to the cooking class.
