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.
Very time consuming, funding for part-time worker
Families are learning new ways of cooking and consuming more healthy foods. Families are feeling supported and thankful that this initiative is available and helps eliminate some of the stresses in their lives.
Through story telling, supporting ones values, traditions and knowledge as they share with one another. Sharing traditional food when it’s available and learning new traditions as they are being taught about cooking, planting and consuming healthy food.
