Since 2009, we have delivered healthy cooking lessons to more than 5,000 children and their parents. Here’s just one example of our impact:

“Before Chef Monica’s classes, I would use vegetable oil to fry chicken or fish,” says Venus Finley, mother of two students at Spencer Technology Academy on Chicago’s West Side. “Now, I’ve learned to bake more, fry less, eat more salads use healthier oils, like olive oil, and try new things. I am a diabetic, so it’s important for me and my family to learn to eat healthier.”
