The Sylvia Center is a part of a movement to develop the next generation of healthy eaters, cooks, and advocates that can fundamentally change the future of food.
We empower our students to take control of their health, help them build a toolkit of life skills, and encourage them to become healthy food advocates within their communities.
The Sylvia Center educates youth on the connection between food and health.
