When introduced at a young age, healthful cooking and eating habits rich in fresh fruits and vegetables can help prevent childhood obesity and build a solid foundation for a fit adulthood. Common Threads aims to foster healthful dietary habits with after-school cooking classes in 16 low-income Chicago neighborhoods, educating children on the importance of nutrition, fresh food, and physical fitness.
Common Threads gathers 812-year-olds in the kitchen with the goal of addressing the problem of childhood obesity and fostering a culture of healthy cooking. During one season of after-school classes, children attend one class per week for 10 weeks, learning basic kitchen skills, the importance of fresh ingredients, healthy cooking techniques, and an appreciation for a variety of cuisines. In 2010, the organization's efforts supplied 12,333 wholesome meals to children in after-school programs and on field trips. Fresh groceries are consistently Common Thread's greatest program expensewith as many as 16 kids in each class, the total for ingredients typically reaches about $150 per class.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help fund groceries for after-school kids' cooking classes throughout the city. If G-Team members raise $300, Common Threads can purchase fresh food for two cooking classes. If donations reach $1,500, Common Threads can provide groceries for all 10 classes in a session at one location. Each additional $150 raised will fund enough groceries for one class.
