Mission Statement

Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit, has the mission to end hunger and poverty in the US and abroad. Through its Cooking Matters Campaign, Share Our Strength is helping end childhood hunger by inspiring families to make healthy, affordable food choices. Our programs teach parents and caregivers with limited food budgets to shop for and cook healthy meals.

Description

Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters is ending childhood hunger in America by helping parents and their children through interactive grocery store tours, hands-on cooking classes, smartphone apps and other resources - all free, and all run through trusted local community programs. With the help of volunteer culinary and nutrition experts, course participants learn how to select nutritious and low-cost ingredients and prepare them in ways that provide the best nourishment possible to their families.

Since 1993, Cooking Matters (formerly Share Our Strength's Operation Frontline) has grown to serve tens of thousands of families each year across the country, helping them learn how to eat better on a budget. Today, 88% of Cooking Matters participants graduate, taking with them improved nutrition practices, eating habits, and food budgeting skills.

Cooking Matters has received special recognition from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for excellence in nutrition education. The program was also freatured by former First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign, a nationwide initiative dedicated to raising a healthier generation of kids.
