Our Story

How It All Began

Hi! My name is Mareesa Ahmad. I just graduated from Wake Forest University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication. My business, Kids Can Cook LLC, was accepted by StartupLab my junior year of college and that allowed me to really transform the business. Now that COVID-19 restrictions are lifting, I am offering in-person cooking classes in addition to the virtual classes. I have taught over 300 students the joys of healthy cooking since 2014 in my hometown of Harlan, Kentucky while also testing recipes and writing blogs for ChopChop Magazine and SpoonUniversity. I want to continue teaching more kids the importance of cooking because it is an essential life skill and should be learned as early as possible. So far, we've reached people across four different continents and I cannot wait to get started with your precious kiddos!
