Recipe For Success Foundation

Who We Are

Recipe for Success Foundation is dedicated to combating childhood obesity by changing the way our children understand, appreciate and eat their food, and by educating and mobilizing the community to provide healthier diets for children.

Now entering our second decade, we have developed a comprehensive experiential learning program that makes healthy food fun, we promote healthy eating with books, contests and public awareness campaigns, and we work to make affordable, healthy food available to everyone. 

Our signature programs include national initiatives like Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ in schools, the VegOut! Challenge, farmers marKIDS DAYS and the Eat It! series of children's cookbooks. In Houston, we go a step further in helping parents provide healthy diets for their kids, by training US military veterans to grow fresh affordable produce for their neighbors at our 7-acre Hope Farmsurban ag showcase in the Sunnyside neighborhood.

What We Do

Recipe for Success Foundation works with dozens of local schools and community centers to create culinary classrooms and gardens where we teach hands-on gardening and cooking healthy, fresh food with an integrated curriculum we call Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™.  The children learn how to plant seeds, grow and harvest the produce, then cook and eat what they have grown.

At our Hope Farms urban agricultural initiative in the Sunnyside neighborhood, we train US Military veterans to grow affordable produce for their neighbors, operate an on-site farm stand, a mobile green market and offer nutrition education, cooking and gardening classes for children and adults. 

At RecipeHouse, we offer classes for Girl Scouts, spring break and summer camp for kids as well as worksite wellness and team building programs for adults, created around a shared cooking experience.
