Virtual – Pi Day Bake Off Fundraiser! 03/14/2021

A FUN (Virtual) Bake-Off fundraiser where kids get to learn, participate, give back to the community and have fun at the same time!

On Pi Day, March 14, 2021 (3.14), please join the Creativity Shell for a fun, tasty and virtual fundraiser!  TICKETS: Proceeds from this event will benefit the Creativity Cooks/healthy meals cooking programs in low income schools, the juvenile justice system, and for any families with children who experience food insecurity.

The Creativity Shell is a nonprofit organization on a mission to use creative trades to educate and inspire the next generation of makers.  Our organization teaches classes such as sewing/textile arts, cooking, building and other creative trades to students in our studios, libraries, schools, ABA therapy centers, the juvenile justice system as well as shelters that rescue children from homelessness and human trafficking.  All of our classes are designed to teach children essential life and practical skills.

Creativity Cooks is a cooking program from the Creativity Shell that teaches both virtual/hybrid and in-person cooking classes to children and youths ages 5-24.  For virtual/hybrid classes, the Creativity Shell packages all ingredients necessary to complete a recipe in a meal kit along with a child friendly written recipe and online video.  The meal kits are delivered to children at their homes, schools or community centers and children can take the kits home to follow directions and make the meal for themselves and/or their families.  Videos of the projects are also available online so children with special needs such as sight, hearing, literacy or language can easily follow along and cook.  Creativity Cooks has also been a great program for children who experience food scarcity and receive food from food backs because Creativity Cooks teaches them to cook a variety of different and healthy meals with common goods such as pasta and rice, they might receive from food banks.

In 2021, the Creativity Shell will be launching the Creativity Cooks program to youths in the juvenile justice system.
