SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom via Crowdrise
November 07, 2013
Join SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom in the 2013 ING NYC Marathon and help us provide high school students throughout New York City with opportunities to engage in hands-on lessons around food, health, and sustainability.
We are putting together an incredible team of runners who share our goal of empowering young people to make healthier decisions for themselves, their communities, and the planet. Please show them your support by clicking on the "Donate" button to the right. With your help, we can combat childhood obesity, encourage environmental sustainability, and build healthier communities for generations to come.
RUN FOR A REASON:
Did you know that one in three high school students nationwide are overweight or obese and as a result will be more likely to experience diet-related diseases, diminished academic performance, and even a shortened life expectacy?
We NEED to reverse this trend. And we can do it with your help.
SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom creates opportunities for students to learn basic cooking skills and how to prepare simple, healthy, and delicious meals. These hands-on lessons are connected to broader conversations that encourage students to consider how their food choices relate to issues of personal, social, and environmental health.
Money we raise from the 2013 ING NYC Marathon will allow us to build our mobile teaching kitchens and bring this kind of experiential food education to students throughout New York City. Please join us. Together, we can fight the obesity epidemic and make a real difference.
