Muncie, IN—Chef Heather Pier from Ivy Tech Community College shares some of her secrets about staying safe and making delicious food, as her Ivy Tech students are busy completing final exams and getting ready for the famous food tasting.

These junior chefs will be ready to take their new cooking skills and apply it to their own dishes, which will be showcased at This Kid Can Cook, a fundraising event for Treefort Ministries on Friday, May 3, from 6-8 pm at Commonway Church located at 201 E. Charles Street in downtown Muncie.

The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for kids five and older; kids younger than five can eat for FREE. Treefort is an organization with a mission to intercede when a boy’s family may be in crisis or in need of support. There will be 25 junior chef teams who will be cooking for the community and judged by Pier and several other faculty members and culinary students.

Pier said, “Friday is going to be boundless fun! I enjoy providing constructive guidance to these young chefs and supporting a great organization!”
