Food For Life

Poor diet and lack of exercise put today’s children at greater risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer later in life.

A foundation for healthy eating at a young age is needed to lessen the risk for chronic diseases. In the Food for Life classes, the curriculum highlights the positives of the four food groups (whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables) in the Power Plate. The curriculum aims to empower children with the knowledge and skills they need to establish healthy habits to carry them well into adulthood.

Note: Please note any food allergies at the time of registration. Scholarships are available. Pre-registration is required.
