RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

For the past 11 years, the Recipe for Success Foundation has been on the front lines of the childhood obesity epidemic by creating positive, hands-on experiences in the garden and culinary classrooms for over 30,000 school students. Available nationally, our Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education program serves as a vehicle for powerful food-based learning experiences that incorporate science, math, history, poetry and art and ultimately culminate in changing the way kids eat. Beyond the classroom, the Foundation produces a variety of other programs to promote a culture where nutritious food is shared, appreciated and celebrated, including the VegOut! Challenge, Farmers MarKIDS and Eat It! Food Adventures book series.
