Donate funds to support SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom or sign up to run on behalf of our cause in the ING NYC Marathon!
Join Team SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom** and help put high school kids in New York City on the right path to their health independence.
SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom is a new organization whose mission is to create safe and inspiring spaces where kids, parents, and members of the community can engage in hands-on lessons around food, health, and sustainability.
Run for a reason.
At Mobile Kitchen Classroom, we are committed to combating childhood obesity and putting our nation’s youth on the path to health independence. Your donations will provide essential support for the School Garden at Bard High School Early College in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and the Mobile Kitchen Classroom, a fully-equipped teaching kitchen that will provide high school students throughout the five boroughs with the opportunity to learn basic cooking techniques and prepare simple, delicious, and healthy meals.
Hands-on lessons in gardening and cooking will be linked to school curriculum at the high school level, enriching explorations in science, math, history, the arts, and more, and helping students achieve their full academic potential. In addition, the school garden and the teaching kitchen will provide beautiful and inspiring spaces where educators, chefs, farmers, and others can come together to share meals, exchange stories, and generate ideas. Our hope is that these experiences will empower students as well as the broader community to make healthier decisions for themselves and the planet.
We are looking for at least five runners to join our team by September 28th. Interested? To run with the SHFT Mobile Kitchen Classroom Team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
