YUM-O! empowers kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking.
To celebrate Thanksgiving and help bring more nutritious options to the table, Rachael wrote this mashed sweet potato recipe for the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (Rach was named a Council member in 2014!) that your friends and family will love!
Share this nutritious, delicious chili with family, friends or a neighbor in need. This dollar-stretcher recipe will feed a crowd and was created by Rach to kick off the 9 Million Meals challenge!
This zesty, good-for-you recipe is perfect for a family dinner. "Pickling" the meat with citrus makes for a quicker prep time.
The FUND component of Yum-o!'s mission helps kids reach their food-related career goals by funding culinary school scholarships. In partnership with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF), Yum-o! is pleased to announce this year's fourteen scholarship winners.
Christian Brannan (Brookdale Community College), Austin Cunningham (Johnson County Community College), Mark Dean (The Art Institute of Pittsburgh), Ashley Freeman (Truckee Meadows Community College), Laishah Holloman (Middlesex County College), Christopher Jansky (Newbury College), Heather Lacey (Sinclair Community College), Brian Mendoza (Elgin Community College), Noelle Movsesian (Platt College), Kaitlyn Traut (Oakland Community College), Christine Whitley (Johnson and Wales University), Anthony Williams (The Art Institute of Charleston), Kelsey Wroble (Baker College), and Passiyon Wyatt (Art Institue of Atlanta) will each receive a $2,500 scholarship to pursue their culinary education.
"This scholarship is so important to me because it will lighten my financial burdens and allow me to focus on the most important aspect of my studies at MCC (Middlesex County College)" said recipient Laisha Holloman. Congratulations to all!
