Thank you so much for buying Well Fed Weeknights and helping us support Common Threads. For every PDF sold, we’ll donate $1 to Common Threads.


If you’ve read some of the opening pages of the book or my web site, you know that food is a really big deal in my family, and many of my most cherished memories are of chopping and stirring in the kitchen—and learning about the cuisines of other cultures.

That’s why I’m so taken with the organization Common Threads. With programs Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, New York City, Austin, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C., Common Threads offers in-school and after-school nutrition education and hands-on cooking classes for third- to eighth-grade students, families, and teachers.

Our mission is to educate children on the importance of nutrition and physical well-being, and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity through cooking.

The first step in eating well is learning to cook, so I love the idea that Common Threads is nurturing our next generation of real food chefs and teaching kids how to respect their bodies and each other.
