I am a student at the University of Houston and an intern for Recipe for Success. I absolutely love their foundation and mission. After seeing first hand how their foundation impacts children every single day, I could not be more proud to be apart of an organization that has such a positive influence in children's lives. Not only are children taught about fruits and vegetables, they play an hands-on role in planting, harvesting and making healthy, kid and adult-friendly recipes. The children are always so excited to come to the class and learn about new foods!
From the website to orientation to execution the Recipe For Success organization is an asset to the Houston community.
Recipe for success serves a vital role in the education of our children. Many of the children have no idea where their food comes from, what a particular vegetable or fruit is called, what nutrition is all about, how to eat a healthy diet, how to grow, harvest and prepare their own food and much more that is gained by exposure to the wonderful teachers trained by Recipe for Success. Teachers are committed to the education process in an ever growing number of schools. They enjoy what they do, and this positive attitude is contageous in the classroom. I can't say enough wonderful things about the organization and the people who make it happen. They are truly giving a gift to the community in all that they do.
Really nice folks. They listen and are as good asking why not rather tham just why.
I cannot say enough great things about this organization. Not only do they have a team of incredible individuals but they have done so much good in the community around them. The people who work here truly care for children and their future. Teaching kids how to cook for themselves, know where their food come from and lead healthier lives. This foundation is also involved in changing public policy to encourage a healthier environment for children to grow up in. I only interned here for a short time but I was truly sad to leave when my rotation was complete.
This is amazing non profit that fights childhood obesity and is winning. Starting in Houston it has now gone national with all its programs. The new program, Hope farms not only helps bring fresh vegetables to food deserts but teaches veterans how to farm.
This organization does great work to fight childhood obesity and educate children about healthy eating. It has detailed tools to help teachers fit the organization's materials into their teaching curriculum.
