The Culinary Literacy Center is based in our kitchen classroom at Parkway Central, but we offer programming at nearly all of our neighborhood libraries. Culinary Literacy Center programs teach healthy cooking, build community, and promote civic dialogue.rnPull up a seat at our table and see whatu2019s cooking at the Free Library of Philadelphia!
