class-a-roll - mobile learning kitchen

Central Virginia’s first mobile learning kitchen, Class-A-Roll, is a part of Bon Secours Virginia’s Building Healthy Communities Initiative. It’s a fun way to give children and their families a hands-on cooking and healthy eating experience and equip them with skills to live a healthier life.

Cook. Eat. Live.

We’re committed to bringing health and wellness to the community of Richmond and being a leader in preventive care by teaching families how to live a healthier lifestyle. Class-A-Roll offers cooking and nutrition programs for children and their families. Children have the opportunity to cook healthy dishes and watch chefs prepare them too! Additionally, we participate in local activities and events to promote healthier cooking and eating habits throughout our community.
