While You Wait...
At Barb Food mart we hope to do more than just fill bellies. This is why we have a number of programs for our families to attend throughout the year.
We off academic and life skills programs for children, students, parents and families. Some examples are:
- ESL course information from Kishwaukee College
- GED course information from Kishwaukee College
- How to Talk to Your Children about School seminars
Every 2nd Thursday we have Food Tastings and recipes available so everyone can step out of their food comfort zones! It is a great chance to learn about new and nutritious means and enjoy some amazing foods!
We also work closely with the DeKalb County Health Department to offer a number of health services, such as:
- Flu Shots
- Blood Pressure Screenings
- Blood Sugar Screenings
- Smoking Cessation
We work with the University of Illinois Extension to teach our children the importance of eating healthy and how it can be fun! The kids are engaged as they get the chance to make fun and easy meals and snacks. They come away empowered and excited about trying new foods!
Nothing like a really good book on a cool tile floor in the summer!
This summer this will be a U Pick Garden from 3:30-6:00 each Thursday for tomatoes and peppers.
Builders Club is SOOO excited to plant tomatoes!
