Our mission to teach our kids about healthy eating and fun cooking with cooking demos in your community, participation in health fairs/carnivals, visits to public schools, and much more.

Help change the trend of child obesity that is affecting YOUR children, as well as your friends and neighbor's kids.

Be a hero, right now!

Be a part of a partnership that endeavors to break the cycle of unhealthy eating and processed foods

Processed food is a big contribution to our health problems but it also causes the gap in our connection with fresh ingredients: fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, etc. We have forgotten the value of natural/organic food.
