Lori is the co-founder and owner of Kids Cooking Green. After several years of teaching cooking classes to children in after school programs, Lori recognized the need for a more formal program that stressed real cooking and hands-on lessons while emphasizing the importance of local food, the impact it has on the environment and food as a social experience. Lori co-founded Kids Cooking Green with this in mind, realizing that if you teach the children about good food, the lessons will last a lifetime.
