Recipe For Success Foundation
September 27, 2011

RFS provides a unique opportunity for disadvantaged youth to learn about gardening and cooking with hands on experience with some of the top chefs in Houston. The program is staffed with exceptional foodies who love introducing students to a healthy appreciation of growing, harvesting and preparing nutritious food. There is nothing like it in our area. It is very cool to see young kids who've turned up their noses at green vegetables to get excited about eating their own cooked broccoli. The program is so important to this population who have a steady diet of fast food. The founder is a brilliant marketer who has established a strong support base of people who are concerned about childhood obesity and the value of teaching children to live more healthy lives.

The Great!

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

seeing the excited students enjoying their gardening and cooking classes.

Ways to make it better...

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

expand the program to more schools however this would require additional funding.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I have been a board member and helped with fundraising.
