At PRE, we believe that healthy food can be delicious. That’s why we partnered with Common Threads, an organization dedicated to bringing health and wellness to children, families and educators in underserved communities through cooking and nutrition education.
During the 2015-2016 school year alone, Common Threads provided hands-on cooking skills to more than 70,000 students and served nearly half a million healthy meals and snacks. The result? 95% of students were self-confident in their cooking skills; 70% communicated to their family about healthy eating, and 80% correctly answered nutrition questions. PRE is dedicated to increasing Common Threads’ impact, both financially and through hands-on volunteering, so even more children can learn about healthy meal preparation this school year.

"Now that I've taken this class, when I choose the food I eat I often use these recipes. At home in the kitchen, we have healthy options that consist of different styles of food and we know how to properly cook many different things."
