Mission Statement

Our mission is to educate and empower children and their families by teaching them how to prepare meals that are healthier and still taste good.

Description

OUR PROGRAM

  • CREATE EDIBLE GARDENS

Under the guidance of CACN, students from local lower and middle schools will grow their own edible gardens and harvest fresh organic produce from it. Our goals are to educate children on where their food comes from and get them involved in the process from the ground, to harvest and preparation to the dinner table. We want to get children outdoors and "hands on" planting edible gardens as well as teaching them the skills to harvest, prepare and cook the foods they have grown.

  • CREATE CULINARY FOUNDATIONS

A Change Now will bring their Chef partners into schools to help educate kids and their families about food and nutrition and invite children to cook the food they've grown and show them how to make it taste good. Chefs are great mentors to children and can have a tremendous impact on them. Our program encourages children to dig in the dirt, taste delicious fresh foods, and learn to make eating choices that will have lifelong health benefits and in turn promote better health within our communities. CACN will inspire both children and families to make common-sense change in their diets - without sacrificing the flavor.

  • CREATE A NUTRITION PROGRAM FOR THE CLASSROOM

Create A Change Now will also enhance classroom curriculum, by improving education in proper nutrition that will help children to adopt and maintain healthy eating habits while also helping them understand how their food choices affect their health, weight and overall well-being.

Would you recommend Create A Change Now?

by Rebekah W. (February 11, 2011)
Our culture and society is such that our people have no connection to the food they eat other than going to the grocery store. Too many parents don't even know the fundamentals of cooking. They eat frozen and canned goods because both parents are working and don't have time to cook even if they know how. This would be an excellent learning experience for children who are learning to become adults.
