Dear Rachel,
And we would welcome your involvement!

Let's talk about how you can facilitate new Recipe for Success Affiliate Partners in the Chicago area. Our partner program is the framework within which we train and certify new S2P Instructors and support them with our hundreds of integrated gardening and culinary lesson plans for PreK-8th graders, which have been indexed by core learning objectives, grade and age level, seasons and ingredients. Its the most comprehensive library of hands-on nutrition education curriculum to be found.

Our S2P Coordinator, Becki Begley can help you with next steps.

Be well,
Gracie

Dear Shirley,
We now have tested content that is age appropriate for middle schoolers and our S2P Coordinator, Becki Begley would be happy to talk with you about it! Your students may also enjoy participating in our FREE downloadable farmers marKIDS project. You can register for complimentary curriculum here: http://www.recipe4success.org/resources/farmers-markids.html

Be well,
Gracie

I am a chef, nutrition coach, and personal trainer in the west Chicagoland suburbs. I recently read an article on you and your organization. It struck my interest because it is one of my goals and passions to improve and help our children and families eating well and living a healthy lifestyle. I'd love to become involved in your organization!

Do you plan on expanding to serve Houston ISD middle schools? I am the 21st Century Community Learning Center Program Specialist at Patrick Henry Middle School located at 10702 East Hardy, Houston, TX 77093. Our students and community could greatly benefit from the Recipe for Success progam.

Dear Crystal,
We have spoken to several folks interested in bringing Recipe for Success programs to Austin and we can't wait to say yes. Right now we are piloting an affiliate program that will allow us to provide support for our Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ programs no matter where they are. We should be ready to make it available to you by next school year. Sign up for our newsletter and watch our website for announcements of new locations starting in the spring. Hopefully there will be one near you. Or maybe you want to start one and sign up for training yourself.
Thanks for your support!
Gracie

Yvonne,
We now have an Affiliate Partner program that supports training and certification of instructors, curriculum content and execution support for delivering our award-winning Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ programs nationwide. We would love your advocacy to bring new Affiliate Partners to San Antonio!

I am very excited about the prospect of growing RFS to my own hometown and would be honored to have your support and involvement.
Gracie

Jeanne,
What we have are folks in Alaska interested in bringing Recipe for Success programs to their school and we want to make that happen. Right now we are piloting an affiliate program that will allow us to provide support for our Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education™ programs no matter where they are. We should be ready to make it available to you by next school year. If you want to get your school involved, start planning now. Do you have a wellness committee?, a garden?, someone who might want to go through S2P instructor training in order to give our classes? Sign up for our newsletter and watch our website for Seed-to-Plate Affiliate applications in the spring.
Good luck! Gracie

Lynette,
We have spoken to several folks interested in bringing Recipe for Success programs to upstate New York.

Do you have any programs in upstate NY?

I have attended a few meetings/events and I want to get more involved. The only issue is that I live in San Antonio. Any word on when the organization will be moving in this direction?

I would love to be more involved!!!!

I read in Family Circle that you are looking to have this program come to Alaska. I'm wondering when you are projecting that this might occur.

Hi, I have decided to train for a marathon and would like to have a fundraiser to donate to this organization upon meeting my goal. How could I go about doing that and could you provide any assistance to me?

I live in Austin - do you have an volunteer opportunities here? Would love to donate my time to your great program! Let me know who I need to connect with.

Thanks,
Crystal

Dear Lauri,
We would love to have your involvement in Hope Farms, which is still in developmental stages. Send us your email address and we will keep you up to date. Gracie

John,
We would love to have your help in the classroom, but it's best if we know you are coming. Give Emily, our Volunteer coordinator a call anytime to arrange. 713-520-0443

I would like to learn more about RFS.

Thanks!

I would like to get more information on Hope Farm. Is it still in progress? Do you need committee volunteers for any work?

I would like to volunteer. I was told about this in a class at u of h. I am a nutrition student there. Could i just show up at the location and work?

Have a question?
