Let’s Eat is an occupational therapy cooking program held during the school holidays. The face-to-face group program is designed to teach participants how to safely and independently make simple and tasty meals.

Our occupational therapists will demonstrate how participants can cook using their current abilities, introduce new skills on task modification and use helpful assistive and adaptive equipment in the kitchen. 

Cooking doesn’t just involve putting all the ingredients together. It also involves planning grocery list, budgeting, purchasing ingredients and cleaning up.
