The Jack and Mo Cooking Show has teamed up with Mohawk Valley Community College to offer cooking classes in the hopes of bringing families together over home-cooked meals. The classes will also be benefiting a local food bank.

The Jack and Mo Cooking Show has been putting on cooking classes all across Central New York, teaching families how to cook healthy, fast, and easy homemade meals that everyone can help make. The father-daughter duo has announced two more classes they will be offering. The first one is "Fun, Fast, and Easy Meals," and the second is "Fun, Fast, and Easy Meals: Back to School."

The first class "Fun, Fast, and Easy Meals," will be held this Saturday (July 29th) from 1pm to 3pm at MVCC's Rome Campus. You'll learn how to make a variety of dishes, and each student will be able to create each dish. They do ask that you bring a sharp knife and a container for leftovers.

The second class "Fun, Fast, and Easy Meals: Back to School," will be held on Saturday, August 12th from 1pm to 3pm. This class is also at MVCC's Rome Campus. The focus will be on making healthy and easy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and not having to rely on fast food when it comes to busy schedules (with after school activities and what not). They ask that you bring a sharp knife and a container for leftovers for this class as well.

If either one of these classes interest you, you can register by visiting: or you can call: (315) 792-5300. Cost is $50 per student, and each student is allowed to bring one family member (which makes sense, considering they're trying to bring families together over cooking). They also ask that you bring in two non-perishable food items that will be donated to St. Margaret's Food Pantry at Grace Church in Utica.

So if you're looking for a fun way to get the whole family together, something that everyone can be a part of and bond over, why not try one of these cooking classes? Not only is it a great way for the kids to learn some beginner skills in the kitchen, but it's also a way for the whole family to spend more time together. Plus, leftovers. It's a win-win-win situation.
