Cook with kids this Saturday

Last year, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared the second Saturday in May "Cook With Your Kids Day" and issued a proclamation urging parents to spend time cooking with their children. Moreover, Guy Fieri was presented with a resolution recognizing him as an advocate for families cooking together.From the Office of the Governor of the State of California -

In 2009, Fieri hosted a sushi class for 40 children at his Sacramento Tex Wasabi's restaurant. Half of the participants were from the UC Davis Children's Hospital.
