EachOne TeachOne Culinary Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Charlotte, North Carolina, is driven to create educational and charitable platforms for children and families (locally, nationally, and internationally) by teaching them how to develop healthy and nutritional behaviors inspiring change toward leading healthier lives.
Children will serve as our ambassadors to learn, teach and encourage others on how to make smart food choices, cook healthy and eat well for a better life. Our key focus is specifically aimed at helping to improve the quality of life for those in vulnerable communities who increasingly face the challenges of having access to healthy foods, and the impact of diseases resulting from childhood and adult obesity.
Meet our Junior Chef Ambassador, Skylar!
Making a difference in the lives of others is very important to us and promoting ways for children, adults, and families to become a healthier version of themselves is key.
According to 2018 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, Charlotte ranks 19th among the most obese cities in the United States and has an 33% obesity rate. The obesity rate among children between ages 10 and 17 is 13.5 percent. Black and Hispanic children have obesity rates of 22.2 percent and 19 percent, respectively. Projected 2030 data estimates for heart disease cases will reach 2.6 million of the population, hypertension (2.4), and diabetes (1.2).
In our communities, we hope all it takes is just one child, one adult at a time to positively influence others to make a change that will improve their lives for the better.
From judging cooking competitions for kids to conducting healthy cooking demonstrations, we are available to support your efforts! We have conducted healthy cooking classes and demonstrations in partnership with organizations including Aramark, American Heart Association, and the City of Charlotte. Additionally, we have traveled outside of Charlotte to New Bern to teach culinary arts students about healthy cooking at New Bern High School. We are available to provide in-home demonstrations for kids and their families and lend our support to teach you how to shop for healthy food at your local grocery store. We're also happy to serve as judges at your organization's cooking competitions, too!
