Recipe for Success Foundation is a non-profit 501C3 charity that focuses on combating childhood obesity by changing the way our children understand, appreciate and eat their food and by educating and mobilizing the community to provide healthier diets for children, with programs that have empowered more than 30,000 children in Houston and beyond with the knowledge and skills they need to lead healthier lives.
The Foundation works to create a culture where nutritious food is shared, appreciated, and celebrated. Through its award-winning efforts like the nationally offered Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ program, Eat It! Food Adventures children's cookbooks, farmers marKIDS DAYS and the VegOut! 30-Day Challenge, and the Hope Farms urban agriculture project in Houston, the Foundation works to make healthy food appealing and available to everyone.
HEALTH PROTOCOL: All volunteers required to wear mask onsite OR provide negative COVID antigen test administered within 12 hours of service (home testing encouraged). *updated 3/10/22*
