Tiny Tots Development Center has joined with Seattle Tilth to offer families a "Good Food Bag"!
 
In and effort to encourage healthy eating and living, the staff at Tiny Tots Development Center is pleased to announce that they have joined together with Seattle Tilth to offer families a "Good Food Bag." Good Food Bags contain locally grown produce and are being distributed to reach local families through three different models: work distribution, funded distribution, and paid orders. 
 
 
 
The mission of Seattle Tilth is to inspire and educate people to safeguard our natural resources while building an equitable and sustainable local food system.
 
Sharing the message that Nutrition is an important component of our lives, it is the goal of the center to convey that their vision is for all families to be healthy. The produce will be 100% organic, free of pesticides, herbicides and harmful additives.
 
  
 
The Center is also very honored to be a recipient of the Rainier Valley Eats Project. The Rainier Valley Eats Coalition believes that healthy food is a basic human right. The organization recognizes that the ability to access healthy food is related to multiple issues and not just a result of low income.  The organization believes in taking a holistic approach to achieve real change in our community’s access to healthy food.
   
Angelia Hicks Maxie, Executive Director at Tiny Tots Development Center is encouraging all families to sign up for this exciting opportunity and she believes these sorts of partnerships with community organizations will hlep to promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
Jacqualine S. Boles, MSN, Tiny Tots Development Center Director of Family and Health Services says the first community kitchen this year was a huge success with over 60 people in attendance. "How exciting it was, we traveled to Mississippi and had on our menu Southern Style Baked Chicken with Gravy, Roasted Herb Potatoes, Yam and Squash Souffle', Seasoned Green Beans, Cornbread, Cranberry/Club Soda Juice Mix.  We were favored with Music by Clifton Maxie and Friends!  Seattle Tilth was there with the Healthy Food Bags, and Our Good Food Bags!  We even had our Founder and CEO present, Mrs. Helen Hicks!  We are also so honored to be a recipient of the Rainier Valley Eats Project, thank you to United Way!"  Boles says the next community kitchen will be held on March 25th, with a rare opportunity to travel to New Orleans and the center will host a Mardi Gras theme for their next community kitchen.
