donationsHelp us in our mission to ensure that children learn the value of a balanced diet.
We need your help now more than ever. Given the worldwide pandemic circumstances, we were forced to close both our restaurant and our catering service. As we no longer have a source of income we are looking to finance everything with your support and donations.
We are about to offer workshops in the community again, and we need your help to make this happen. Your donation will finance all the materials and ingredients of the classes, guaranteeing that we can continue.
If you or your company wants to help, we are grateful for any donation you can make.
Only 17/6% of children hit their recommended target of 5 fruit and vegetables a day, according to the Ministerio Nacional de Salud (2012), and Argentina still has the highest rate of obesity among children of 0-5 years in Latin America.

Now we are going to host the workshops in a children’s home, where families can also take part. It is important to me because a nutritious diet makes you feel good, and you can work better.

What they put on the table was pure sugar, at, salt and flour. It is food, but it is not nourishment,” she commented. And contrary to popular belief, healthy eating isn’t expensive.
Our workshops were financed directly with the profits of our catering service and “closed-door” restaurant. As we are not in the position to continue with these we need your help.
With your donations, you help us to buy the materials that we need: the booklets for each child that takes part in the workshops, pots and pans that we use to cook, ingredients and raw materials.
These are the tools that we need to reach our goals in the workshops. We were previously successful in self-financing everything with the earnings from our restaurant and catering service, but now we need your help to be able to CONTINUE offering workshops to the children that need us.
