Studies show that when kids eat meals with their families, they’re more likely to have nutritious diets, healthy body weights and do better in school.
Thankfully, President Obama signed into law the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, providing funding to improve children’s access to healthy nutritious meals. Although this is landmark legislation, still more can be done.
Our local food banks are doing a heroic job providing more food to those in need, but often these homes lack the tools used to prepare and enjoy the food- pots, pans, plates forks and knives. The organization, Pots and Pans, was created to address this need.
The mission of Pots and Pans is to provide cooking tools to those in need through the recycling and re-distribution of commonly used kitchen items. The goal is to recycle and share tools needed for the easy preparation of meals enjoyed at the family table.
We need you! Clean out your kitchen cabinets, shop garage sales, attend auctions and help us collect, recycle and re-use commonly used kitchen items. Are you an empty nester? Do you have elderly parents moving to smaller homes? Changes of life often identify a surplus of stuff that others can benefit from, so recycle it and donate your kitchen items to Pots and Pans.
Help us keep the good stuff moving forward. Pots and Pans is a volunteer organization guided by community members dedicated to food and family. If you are interested in helping us grow through volunteering or to donate items or funds please contact us at (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will gladly pick up multiple items from homes and restaurants.
