Marin’s rate of overweight children is lower than the Bay Area and statewide averages, but is increasing (Marin Department of Health and Human Services). We have to ACT now!

Thanks to our generous donors, Kids Cooking for Life can continue our critical mission of inspiring kids to eat healthy for life, and expand our programming to reach more kids in the Bay Area.

We need your help to ensure our kids (including those from low income communities and those with special needs) make healthy food choices, which last a lifetime.

Kids Cooking for Life in your school

Our teachers bring in everything necessary for the hands-on cooking experience (after school or during the school day, one-hour or multiple back-to-back classes). All we need are tables and a sink to make the magic happen!

We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how we might work together to bring our program to your students.




If you have a passion for helping kids learn about healthy diets, experience new foods, and gain the confidence to cook wholesome meals, then Kids Cooking for Life is a perfect fit for you. We are looking for exceptional individuals who would like to volunteer and gain practical experience as an assistant instructor. Perfect for older teens, those studying health and education as well as retirees who enjoy cooking.
