The SOS Community Kitchen is not your ordinary community kitchen. Meals prepared at the Kitchen utilize 90% fresh fruits and vegetables, prioritize whole wheat and 100% grains, and limit the consumption of high-sodium, high-salt snacks that are the norm for many children. By providing healthy lunches and after-school snacks at numerous sites, it relieves the burden for low-income parents who do not always have the money to provide their kids with enough food to last throughout the day.


Our Community Kitchen saves low-income families an average of $74.00 per month, per child, per meal served.

NUTRITION EDUCATION

SOS AmeriCorps VISTAs conduct nutrition education classes and interactive cooking demonstrations to teach children how to maintain and improve their health through their food choices and food preparation techniques.  We provide nutrition resources that are not typically available to low-income clients, to magnify the benefits of our healthy food distributions. Together,  these efforts create a comprehensive approach to reducing food insecurity and chronic, food-related illness.

Good health starts with good habits, like eating wholesome foods. With sustainable, aeroponic Tower Gardens, we can easily grow our own fresh, nutrient-rich foods virtually anywhere, year‑round, without soil. We incorporate Tower Gardens into our nutrition education at child care sites to make our lessons fun, comprehensive, and hands-on!
