Both USC's MYLA Obesity Prevention Program and HEAC (Healthy Eating Active Communities) at The Accelerated School hired RootDown to train kids in their food systems/nutrition education programs to cook healthy food and build preferences and demand for fresh foods in their communities. THEN! - the MYLA students took their new skills to teach their peers back at the College Ready Academy. And, TAS students will use their cooking & veggie-pushing skills to run healthy food tastings where they have completed their corner store conversions, bringing more fresh foods into corner markets near the school.
