Food Network, First Lady Improve Kids' Lives

Inspired by the Food Network, today we learned about Horton's Kids, a nonprofit, that according to the website: Horton’s Kids is a 501(c)3 whose mission is to educate and empower the children of Washington, DC’s Ward 8 by providing comprehensive, direct services which improve the quality of their daily lives and nurture their desire and ability to succeed.

  • Education
  • Enrichment
  • Health & Basic Needs
  • Community & Environment

are the four elements the non profit works to improve the everyday life of kids at risk.

"In a special episode of Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine faced his toughest challenge yet when First Lady Michelle Obama assigned him the task of rebuilding Horton’s Kids, a children’s community center that provides many services such as serving after-school meals in one of Washington, D.C.’s neediest neighborhoods... The brand-new kitchen and dining area have enabled Horton’s Kids to run cooking classes and hands-on nutrition programs more effectively. “During a recent class, we had kids sautéing vegetables, making omelets on the stovetop and blending fruit smoothies — all simultaneously,” says Executive Director Brenda Chamberlain," says the Food Network website.
