Members Learning To Love Their Veggies!

The Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena is proud to be a part of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation’s “Know Your Fruits and Veggies Program. Oliver, known to millions from his cooking shows on television, has long been a proponent of introducing healthier foods in schools and helping kids to eat better. Our Mackenzie-Scott branch recently began integrating “Know Your Fruits and Veggies” into the Healthy Habits program for ages 8-10, using produce from supermarkets, the farmers market, and our own Club garden! Our kids are learning about nutrition, sustainable eating and are even getting hands-on experience in making healthy food, including a tomato and bell pepper salad during the first class. Our Slavik branch will begin the program next quarter.
