The “Fresh From Florida” Club

One thing we all have in common is that we all like food – Good foot.  However, many new residents arriving in Florida aren’t familiar with what’s fresh in season.  For example, strawberries are harvested in winter in Florida, not summer as in our Northern states. I don’t know how good a cook you are, but it’s certain that our kids have us as their first cooking instructor. Help is available!

In 2020, the “Fresh From Florida” Club was launched from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services ( ). Thousands of young and old enthusiastic cooks have joined.

‘Fresh From Florida’ Club

The ‘Fresh From Florida’ Club is great way children can learn to engage in cooking.

You can request help with a specific recipe, ask for an ingredient substitution or seek advice on creating a party menu. There’s so much to explore, you’ll never run out of fresh ideas. Let’s help our kids (and ourselves) be better cooks! For more information, or to register to join the Club with fellow enthusiastic cooks, click here:
