Mission Statement

Create a Change Now is a Las Vegas non-profit 501c3 organization that is changing the way families eat by educating and empowering children to make healthier food choices that are nutritious and delicious.

Description

Too many families eat too few of their meals around the family dinner table at home. Too many children make unhealthy food choices that have harmful consequences - including the alarming rise in childhood obesity in America. Statistics show that one in three children in the United States is considered overweight, but locally according to research by healthyamericans.org, Nevada has the eleventh highest percentage of overweight and obese children in the nation. Create A Change Now , is helping children plant edible gardens in schools and has enlisted some of the finest chefs in the world - from right here in Las Vegas -- to help reverse those related cultural trends.

If you love getting involved and making a difference in children's lives this is a great organization to go with. I helped the children with harvesting the vegetables (they had planted last year) and prepared them for selling it for their Farmer's Market event. There are numerous events throughout the year you can get involved with. I will definitely continue to volunteer with this organization in the future.
