Help me inspire young people to discover good nutrition through experiences with fruits and vegetables, on the farm and in the kitchen.

THE STORY:

A couple of years ago this would have been a challenge that I could not have taken. I couldn’t walk 2 blocks much less run 26.2 miles. Then I discovered the transformative powers of real food and running the marathon is my way of paying back all of the people who invested their time and talents educating me about the joys and the benefits of proper nutrition.

Here’s a video clip from my appearance on the Rachael Ray Show about my Marathon training: http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/show/segments/view/robin-quivers

I decided that I should run for The Sylvia Center and FamilyCook Productions because I believe that this information should be available to everyone, especially children. It has been a pleasure getting to know the young people in these two programs and to listen to the stories of how what they have learned has transformed their lives and the lives of their families and friends.

These organizations bring families and children together around delicious, fresh food while positively impacting their health and well-being. They offer schools, community-based groups, and other organizations field-tested programs that teach nutrition through cooking.

With the money raised by Robin and 15 Foundation in the NYC Marathon:

FamilyCook will expand the reach of its evidence-based Teen Battle Chef program. Currently in 80 schools across the U.S., the Summer Intern Brigade will expand from NYC to partner schools in Connecticut and HealthCorps schools in New Jersey. Over 50 students will “Stir up Change” by teaching cooking, conducting healthy recipe demonstrations at farmers’ markets, and growing veggies in food deserts while impacting hundreds of families in their respective communities.

The Sylvia Center will run a year-long program in public housing for 100 children who will receive weekly cooking classes as well as a garden-to-table experience at Katchkie vegetable farm. Professional chef instructors will share their passion for delicious, healthy dishes that feature whole fruits and vegetables. Children will come away with the skills and knowledge to make smart food choices all their lives.

Help kids in the Tri-State region to learn how to cook and eat healthy food!
