Cooking For Life
Common Threads is a national nonprofit that provides children and families cooking and nutrition education to encourage healthy habits that contribute to wellness. We equip under-resourced communities with information to make affordable, nutritious and appealing food choices wherever they live, work, learn, and play. We know that food is rooted in culture and tradition so we promote diversity in our lessons and recipes, encouraging our participants to celebrate the world around them.
At Common Threads, we are picking up our pots and pans to stir up some excitement for fun, healthy, easy cooking: In the schools, communities and kitchens across America.
