What We Do

The Sylvia Center (TSC) is creating healthy communities through the power of cooking. TSC was founded in 2007 to address the growing tide of childhood diet-related diseases in our communities. Our mission is to educate young people and families through culinary programming to promote health and well-being. Since its inception, TSC has assisted more than 38,000 individuals learn about, explore, and access nutritious foods and become ambassadors for healthy eating in their communities.
