About Cooking Quest

Cooking Quest is a hands-on cooking field trip for Grade 4 students. Four classes participate at a time — two onsite in Winnipeg, and two remotely via live online feed from outside Winnipeg. During Cooking Quest, students are challenged to conquer quests, prepare delicious dishes and earn cash donations that will be donated to a school feeding program at a school near their own. Please note this event will be videotaped and students need to sign a consent form to participate.

Cooking Quest is free to attend; however you are responsible for your own transportation to and from the Sunova Centre at 48 Holland Road if you are participating onsite. Classes that have attended in the past have organized divisional, arranged for private bus services, or had parent volunteers drive students to the venue.

Apply for a spot October 17, 2017!
