VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Gwen Bivens and Denise Bell have created a special camp program at North Florida Community College.

They are teaching students how to prepare dishes ranging from macaroni to spaghetti to shepherd's pie. 

They also teach them about kitchen safety and the importance of always having an adult present. 

Seventh grader Morgan Cranford said her connection to the culinary program is deeper than food because she gets to share it with someone she loves. 

"Me and my grandad, we love pineapple so much, we just eat it all in like one day," said Cranford. 

Bell said they also host the camp to help take stress off of the parents.

"The purpose is for them to take stuff home to their parents but sometimes it doesn't always quite make it home," said Bell.
