Recipe For Success Foundation
September 27, 2011

Each time I have the chance to see kids in action in the RFS classroom, I know that Recipe for Success is making a life changing difference in children's lives. To see their faces light up and hands raise to chop, peel, mix and stir is such an enlightening experience and makes you think about how the simple act of cooking can create such happiness. My hope is that the children take these lessons home and ask their parents to interact more with them in the kitchen and really create a family dynamic of togetherness that may not have existed before. You see reluctant kids try all kinds of fruits and veggies that some have never seen before and it is hilarious and inspiring. Recipe for Success classes not only teach children how to garden, cook and eat, but it also teaches them how to share, how to work as a team and how to use their imaginations with healthy, good food.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing children try something new. Some of the children have never heard of kale, but they try it and actually enjoy it!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

develop a program that teaches older children a healthy way of life through food
