Programs: our signature Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ curriculum. The largest program of its kind, RFS has reached over 20,000 children with an integrated schedule of classes in the garden and kitchen. We have documented: significant improvements in nutrition knowledge, increases in consumption of fruits and vegetables, and a greater willingness to try new fruits and vegetables. In 2010, RFS was asked by the current administration to bring our programs to national scale prompting the development of Affiliate Partnerships which launched in 2012.

Our kid's cookbook, Eat It! Food Adventures was released in 2012 and has since won eleven national publishing awards.

We created the VegOut! Challenge to support efforts of families and individuals to eat healthier with our 30 Ways in 30 Days Challenge - a year-round advocacy promo for eating new vegetables which culminates every March.

Mission:
The mission of the Recipe for Success Foundation is to combat childhood obesity and encourage long-term health by altering the way children understand, appreciate and eat their food.  The earlier in life a person’s weight is brought under control, the better chance that person has of minimizing those health risks.  Novel approaches in the prevention and treatment of childhood overweight and obesity are, therefore, urgently required. Children who are overweight at 11 will battle obesity issues for life, so early intervention is mandatory.
Results:
Parents are reporting increase consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables and reduced resistance to trying new healthy foods.
