What does it mean to change the way Milwaukee eats?
Donations of any amount, recurring or once a year, make a huge impact. Just $5 sends home a plant-based meal kit to a Milwaukee student & family.
Your donation makes a difference to the health and well-being of not only a single child but an entire community for generations to come.
Eating take-out and pre-packaged convenience foods has become the norm. While Americans from every sector suffer the effects, people in low-income communities - where food budgets are limited - suffer disproportionately. So many of our children, particularly the poorest, have been raised on a steady diet of high-sugar, high-fat, highly-processed foods. The result is an alarming rate of obesity, malnutrition, diabetes and heart disease.
Teaching children (as well as their parents, teachers and neighbors) to cook and appreciate wholesome, affordable, nutritious food, now, can help stop the cycle of food-related disease and health disparities. At FoodRight we understand that complex problems require multi-faceted solutions, that's why, in addition to direct education, we develop innovative strategies to help support healthier school environments through policy, systems, and environmental initiatives.
Your support creates a ripple effect—children who learn to cook and appreciate healthy food now cook and eat healthy foods throughout their life. They raise children with the same values and pass on these life skills. Together with your support we can reverse the epidemic of obesity and poor eating in a single generation. All children deserve access to wholesome food and the chance to enjoy life-long health.
