NEW YORK-Zak Designs will participate in the second Kids Food Festival here next month.

The festival includes kids' cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion; food samplings and product demonstrations; live music; a Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt; giveaways; free admission ice-skating and more. The goal of the program is to fight childhood obesity through fun and flavorful activities and learn about balanced food and lifestyle choices.

The Kids Food Festival, in partnership with Cooking Light, will donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to Food Corps. General admission is free, but tickets are required for cooking classes hosted in the James Beard Foundation. Zak is providing the Kids Food Festival with its signature Confetti bowl sets as part of prize package for winning participants.

"This is a great example of people who are getting involved and putting together a program that is making a real difference in addressing a serious problem in our country, and we're proud to contribute in some small way to their efforts," said Irv Zakheim, president and CEO of Zak Designs.

The event takes place Nov. 3 - 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Citi Pond at Bryant Park.
