About Chefs For Kids
Nutrition education is at our core. Chefs for Kids alleviate malnutrition and hunger in children through education and awareness. For more than 30 years, we have been the only Clark County School District-sanctioned nutrition education program within Title I schools - face-to-face with more than 200,000 students. We partner with nutrition educators, local chefs, and companies to deliver nutrition education initiatives that directly impact a child's understanding of food. Working together, we provide a Healthy Eating Education Program that not only feeds kids but provides them with the nutrition education building blocks for living a healthier lifestyle.
We focus on three initiatives in our Healthy Eating Education Program:
- Nutrition Education - Each month teachers visit third-grade classrooms at Title I schools for 40 minutes of instruction in healthful nutrition practices based on the most current research, and the importance of physical activity.
- Cookin' Up Breakfast - Every year, each of the Title I schools that receive our Nutrition Education also receives one free healthy breakfast for the entire student body and faculty, prepared by local chefs.
- Holiday Helpings - During the school holiday breaks we supply at-risk families in need of food with a gift card, nutrition information provided in our classrooms, and a bag of fresh produce.
We need a Healthy Eating HERO like you to help us continue our important work. We have several partnership opportunities available. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how we can work together.
