SNACC (Sustainable Nutrition And Community Connection) began as an after-school cooking initiative providing nutritional education programming for youth growing up in limited-resource environments. SNACC promotes positive youth development by equipping students with the skills to make healthful choices, form relationships with mentors, increase self-efficacy, and safe outlets to explore creative interests.

SNACC in Action

SNACC launched at a Title 1 School on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in January 2020.  Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continued our work with families and students living in NYC through our meal distribution program and virtual enrichment curriculum.

In our commitment to address food insecurity, we partnered with a local farm to deliver over 16,000 healthy meals directly to our community members’ doorsteps. Our online curriculum includes a virtual kitchen where chefs demo their favorite easy, low-cost recipes for our SNACC community.  In our summer enrichment program, students explore STEM principles that apply to nutrition and cooking through food experiments, virtual field trips, and educational games.  

As we navigate the new educational environment in NYC for our students, we will continue to develop innovative programming to best serve the community needs. This work is only possible through the support and partnership of our generous donors. We thank you with all of our hearts.
