Our goal is to help families consume more fruits and vegetables in their everyday diets and cook healthy meals. We teach the nutritional values that fruits and vegetables hold, how to best cook with them and how preserve or store them. We focus on strengthening the families that we work with and this is one of the many ways that we help them to feel valued as parents.
