special care of families. It's never too early to introduce the next
generation to the pleasures of food and cooking! On the agenda every
morning will be a workshop specially designed for children ages 3 to

during these guided activities. In addition to taking part in
workshops, the little ones can have fun on the obstacle course set
up on site. The city's libraries have even decided to join the
movement by presenting games and themed readings on the subject of
food and agriculture during the event.
