FOOD SKILLS
programs.

our recipe for change

  1. Offer hands-on cooking and gardening programs that bring people together and help them build the skills, knowledge and habits they need to feed themselves a healthy diet.

  2. Empower people to take control over their personal health and nutrition within the context of their circumstances. 

  3. Foreground participant leadership in programs, and focus on supporting people to make lasting and sustainable changes in their diets.
