Kids in the Kitchen


Recognizing the need to fight the childhood obesity epidemic, we have partnered with UnitedHealthcare and local after-school programs to administer our Kids in the Kitchen (KITK) program. Through this nationally recognized health education program, we will reach more than 1,000 Dallas County children and parents this year with a curriculum covering the basics of nutrition, healthy meal preparation and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The goal of the KITK program is to empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and reverse the trend of childhood obesity and its associated health issues. Through KITK interactive program, children are taught how to prepare easy, nutritious meals, work safely in the kitchen and incorporate exercise into their daily lives. All recipes are kid tested and truly kid friendly, calling for simple ingredients that do not require an oven or stove.


The 2020-2021 application period is now closed. Please email for information on next year’s application process.
