Raising Foodies is a healthy cooking class series for young moms in foster care living at St. Anne's residential facility in East Los Angeles.
At each class, a top LA chef demonstrates an affordable, seasonal family meal that is then enjoyed by our young moms and Alliance of Moms member volunteers. The cooking class turns into a community dinner as moms discuss healthy food, meal time routines, and motherhood. During the meal, other member volunteers provide childcare for the moms' children. Afterward, the girls take home nutritional tips, recipes and, on special occasions, brand new cooking utensils to help them grow their own kitchen resources.
All produce used at Raising Foodies is generously donated by GrubMarket, an online grocery store working with over 100 local partners and artisans. Farm-to-doorstep at it’s finest!
Alliance of Moms member Khatira Brown is the coordinator of the Raising Foodies Program.
