Virtual Cooking Demo: Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Panzanella to Benefit Common Threads

Join us for a virtual cooking class with The Chopping Block's Owner/Chef Shelley Young to benefit Common Threads in partnership with Top Box Foods. Shelley will teach you how to make a seasonal, hearty, yet healthy Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Panzanella Salad via a Zoom demonstration. 

The Chopping Block has supported Common Threads' mission for many years, and you can choose to make a donation to this organization when you register for this class. Common Threads' cooking and nutrition programs and curriculum help kids and families experience the joy of cooking, while learning how and why healthy food fuels the body. All of the donations will go directly to Common Threads, and The Chopping Block and Common Threads will split the proceeds from this class.
