Firstly, I would like to thank you all for providing a virtual Summer Cooking Camp. It was not just a cooking experience, Eliza learned yoga, all about what is a fruit and what is a vegetable. They also read, had drawing lessons, and learned about healthy eating. Eilza was able to follow the lessons without falling behind. As per Eliza, her experience was fun and exciting. She really enjoyed it. Eating healthy is a practice we implement at home. But she learned new things like mixing fruits and meat together. And everything was delicious. Eliza’s favorite part of the cooking lessons is creating new foods and learning how her plate should look- rainbow plate. Excellent! Eliza enjoyed using all the supplies that were sent for her to use. Overally as a parent I give your program a 10 out of 10. It was very informative and full of new experiences for my daughter. Thank you for this opportunity.

This program is a phenomenal way for students to enjoy cooking and culture, while learning about making healthy lifestyle choices. At Colfax, we savor Common Threads as an integral after-school program for our students.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami is thankful to have such a strong community partner in Common Threads. During the COVID-19 crisis, our Littles and their families did not have enough food to eat. Thanks to Common Threads, hot food to cover four days was secured from Cafe La Trova. In times of crisis, humanity and partnership always win!

Please know that the Carrie P. Meek family is truly grateful for the support that the Common Threads program is providing to our families. Without the Common Threads program, we would not be able to do this good deed! In addition, we thank all involved in making provisions to our families in the form of gift cards to support them during this unprecedented time. I am personally thankful and appreciative for your-in kind gift to our families in need.

My training as a chef gives me the platform to help others, which is why I work with Common Threads and other community organizations. “I knew I could not be on the sidelines wishing someone would help, and I am grateful to be part of the solution.
