Every young person should be able to enjoy, prepare, and speak up for healthy food. At the Sylvia Center, we can grow a more equitable food system by engaging youth around nutritious food in their own communities and by providing real opportunities for their future.
Through our work in community kitchens, our students learn what fresh food is, how delicious it tastes, and what it takes to prepare nutritious meals on a daily basis. Our students learn practical skills, work together as a team, and become more open to trying new things and making healthy choices.
For our older students, we connect this work to real opportunities in the local food system.
