This month we are proud to donate 10% of proceeds in support of the amazing work of Common Threads, an organization that is "picking up pots and pans" to fight the obesity crisis and hunger paradox on the front line: in kitchens of low-income, urban communities across America.
Common Threads delivers culturally-relevant cooking and nutrition curriculum for kids in underserved schools and communities that results in life-long healthy eating habits. Founded in Chicago in 2003, the non-profit served over 21,000 students and adults in Chicago during the 2014-2015 school year. Their vision to prevent childhood obesity expands far beyond Chicago into other cities around the country including Los Angeles, Miami, Washington DC, New York City, Austin, Jacksonville and New Orleans.
Common Threads has the power to change lives by sharing the delight of cooking and delicious recipes, in conjunction with practical life-skills in health and nutrition. Through a family-centric, hands-on model with proven results, Common Threads empowers children to eat healthy, make sustainable behavior changes, and celebrate culture through food.
