Comments Off on celebrate friends and fans – 2011

Fridays are for celebrating Stance Friends and Fans. I encourage you to visit their facebook page, website or place of business and tell Stance about your experience with them.

Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters is proud to bring you Colorado’s premier culinary extravaganza featuring chefs from the area’s finest restaurants: Chefs Up Front Denver.

More than 12 million children are at risk of hunger in America; in Colorado, one in seven children are hungry or at risk for malnutrition.

Twenty-one percent of children in Denver are living in poverty and are at risk of hunger. Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters is a groundbreaking nutrition education program that helps families help themselves by teaching them how to prepare healthy low-cost meals.

Professional chefs and nutritionists volunteer their time and expertise to lead hands-on courses that instruct adults, teens, and kids living in low-income families, how to get the most nutrition out of a limited budget.

In 2009, Cooking Matters Colorado coordinated 124 courses that impacted a total of 1,526 families. In 2011 our goal is to provide at least 200 courses in our 16 county service area, reaching more than 7,500 families.

Cooking Matters Colorado celebrates its 16th anniversary this summer. In these 16 years they have completed a total of 717 courses and reached 7,288 families through their hands-on, volunteer led courses and an additional 18,365 families through other health fairs and community outreach projects.
