Thank you so much for buying a copy of Well Fed: Paleo Recipes For People Who Love To Eat!
If you’ve read some of the opening pages of the book, 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 26 programs in cities like Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., Common Threads teaches low-income kids how to cook wholesome, affordable meals in free, after-school, hands-on cooking classes taught by local chefs.
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. We help bridge cultural boundaries and strengthen our global family by teaching children about their similarities and differences in the warm comfort of the kitchen: Through the simple process of preparing and sharing a nutritious meal, children who participate in our programs learn to connect with their bodies, their neighbors, and their world in bite-sized lessons.
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.
