Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundation is an excellent nonprofit organization. They plant gardens for children to see how easy it is to grow healthy foods and eat healthy. They also give scholarships to outstanding students and honor standouts in the community. I really have enjoyed their yearly awards dinner. I believe they are doing great work in the community.

Live Healthy and Thrive is a staple in the community. We need more organizations like Live Healthy and Thrive because our children are the future. The health of this country is vital and Live Healthy and Thrive understands that! Our children have to be prepared physically, mentally and emotionally, to continue on in our foot steps. I love what they stand for and the affect it has on the community. This is truly a Great Non Profit!

I have volunteered with Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundatiion, for almost 2 years. Early on, I was able to be a part of some amazing events, including, the annual 5k, the Summer camp, the Gala, and community fairs. I love being involved in my community and I adore children, so LHTYF, has allowed me to do what I truly love. LHTYF is helping youth to learn about living healthy and thriving and that is truly an awesome contribution!!

Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundation is an awesome foundation that helps youth to learn about healthy food choices and active living through the Summer Camps and other community activities. It has also helped me as an adult to be more aware about what I eat and what to look for when buying food. I am excited about being a part of this great foundation and I am happy that there is an organization that is focusing on teaching our youth healthy habits.
