Food for Thought: Mentoring is a no-cost learning support and enrichment program for 4th through 8th graders, which is aimed to equip and encourage children and youth through the exploration and enjoyment of food. This one-on-one mentoring program will reinforce skills known to be necessary for success in and out of school. The central theme of food and thinking will come to life in one-on-one mentoring relationships.

Together mentors and mentees will …

  • Share healthy and delicious meals.
  • Take cooking classes with professional chefs.
  • Participate in creating real solutions for hunger, health, and sustainable agriculture.
  • Learn about the food we eat.
  • Investigate how different cultures around the world eat, extend hospitably and show gratitude.
  • Build meaningful relationships that support them during the joys and the struggles of life.
