Changing The Way We Eat

Recipe for Success Foundation was founded in 2005 by Gracie Cavnar to combat childhood obesity by changing the way children understand, appreciate and eat their food and educate and mobilize the community to provide them with healthier diets.

We are fighting to save the lives of children and our country from the devastating effect of obesity, and I need your help.
            One in three Texan children are overweight or obese, including almost half of Hispanic children in the state. This is a debilitating problem that dramatically impacts not just their health and self esteem, but our economy as well.
Obese children usually become obese adults with increased risk of developing chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, liver failure and cancer.  These preventable diseases cost our country more than $270 billion a year.
Now studies show that childhood obesity leads to low academic performance, plus a higher likelihood of not completing high school and going on to college—costing our country billions of dollars in unrealized income, and depriving America of the skilled workforce we need to be globally competitive.
That's why I'm hoping you will consider a charitable investment of $50, $500 or even $5,000 to help the Recipe for Success Foundation combat childhood obesity in Houston and beyond.
Your contribution will provide the critical funding we need to deliver our award-winning programs in elementary schools where we empower young children and their parents to make a lifetime of healthy eating decisions.  Our goal is to raise $100,000 with this year-end appeal, which will help us reach as many as 5,000 more children.
After just eight years and 20,000 Houston children impacted, our efforts are reaping big rewards: Children are changing their habits by eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, and they are making healthier choices at school and at home.
These are positive results, but there is more work to do and millions more children to help. You can play an important role in our ability to help more children by making a contribution of $50, $500 or even $5,000 today.
Together we can make a profound difference in the lives of Texas children. I'm ready to do my part. Can I count on you?
