“These classes have introduced our family to a whole new world of eating. Ben is excited to try new recipes and making the meals has increased his independence. He is learning the importance of eating vegetables!”
-Mary, family class participant, Philmont NY
Mary and Ben participated in our Cooks for Health Family program, a 6-week virtual cooking class coupled with meal kits. By the end of each class, a healthy dinner for the whole family is on the table. Mary exclaims, “Ben is always so proud of making a meal and then sharing it with the family. As a parent, I am so grateful. We love cooking classes!”
The roots of health disparities start in childhood, so youth-focused programs are crucial for children to develop the intellectual skills, creativity, and well-being required to become healthy and productive adults.* The Sylvia Center programs effectively teach families the importance of including youth in cooking at home. Over 90% of families want to join our program again, our families are hungry to learn more.
Thank you to everyone who has supported The Sylvia Center this year. We appreciate your generous support of our life-altering programs.
