Next meeting June 1st

Do you love trying new and exciting snacks? Come try what teens all over the world are snacking on when we unbox our monthly Universal Yums box. Each month snacks from a different country will arrive to surprise you with new flavors of chips, cookies, and candy. We will combine our snack session with music, crafts, shows, and pastimes from that country; every month; it will be something different. Laugh, savor, and debate yum vs. yuck as you taste test your way around the world.
Allergen warning: Universal Yums is not able to individually customize the boxes. The ingredients of each snack are listed in the booklet included in the box. Please be aware that some products are manufactured in a facility that also handles common allergens such as wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, soybeans, eggs, milk, fish, and shellfish. Please do not attend this Around the World session if you have severe food allergies.
