This year we are proud to announce that we will be partnering with the Coastal Bend Food Bank's Culinary Kits for Kids Program. We had the opportunity to work with the Food Bank in preparation for the 2019 festival and believe our missions align and can not wait to help partner and bring awareness to their program for 2021.
The Coastal Bend Food Bank Nutrition Team puts on the Culinary Kits for Kids which provides roughly 100 Kid Chefs with free virtual cooking classes. The Culinary Kits for Kids includes ingredients, three recipe cards, and access to virtual cooking demonstrations. Their Nutrition Educators will navigate children through a virtual culinary adventure of healthy eating and cooking.

AMST educators offer off-site programming throughout the year at the Antonio E. Garcia Arts and Education Center, similar to programming offered at the Museum. In addition, a free of charge Arts-After School Program provides tutoring, arts activities and mentoring during the school year. TAMU-CC students tutor the children in all areas, with special emphasis on reading. The art activities focus on literacy, and tie in to the current exhibitions at the Museum.
During the summer, the “Very Important Kid” Camp provides visual and performing arts training for neighborhood children. 75% of the children attending “VIK” Camp, receive a full scholarship or a discounted tuition. The Garcia Center, located in one of Corpus Christi’s most economically disadvantaged areas, offers a safe, educational and cultural environment for children and their families.
