FoodRight's mission is to empower youth to choose foods that sustain life-long health.

What's in a name?

Our Youth Chef Academy (YCA) programs provide hands-on culinary nutrition and gardening education in Milwaukee schools. We believe access to fresh, whole foods and the education to learn the skills needed to make those foods into a nutritious, wholesome, plant-based meal, is a FOOD RIGHT that everyone deserves. 

FoodRight Students Cooking Together Around a Bowl

"FoodRight is amazing. I can't believe how it changes the kids' attitudes about food. I have used similar ingredients at home, and my children have refused to try the meals. After making recipes with her class, I have seen my daughter and the other kids asking for second servings of healthy foods. Not only does she want to help cook at home now, but she also thinks about her food choices and whether they are good for her body. It's been a wonderful experience for our whole family."
