Kids Cook!

(Feeding Hungry Kids)

Too many children in our community spend their out of school hours in environments where there is not enough to do, not enough to eat, and not enough positive human contact.

Too many families report that barriers to making healthy food choices include a lack of time, money, transportation, and experience with preparing healthy foods.

Common Threads’ Kids Cook! Program aims to address these problems by working with kids to prepare and eat nutritious, delicious, affordable, and simple meals after school and during the summer.  

Our current community partners include East Whatcom Regionals Resource Center as well as Regency Park and Sterling Meadows apartment complexes.

Are you interested in bringing Kids Cook! to your site? Are the majority of the kids you serve living in low-income households?  If so, please contact – we’d love to collaborate with you to help grow healthy, happy kids!
