Common Threads

Common Threads is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is national in scope, with strong roots in each of our 13 major program locations. Now celebrating our 15th year, we are dedicated to promoting health and wellness to children, families and communities through cooking and nutrition education. We integrate our preventive health programs into school districts and community organizations to help combat the rising number of diet-related diseases and cultivate a culture that embraces a healthier lifestyle and celebrates diversity through food. We envision a community of learners that embraces healthy cooking, healthy eating and healthy living as both a life choice and a human right. Common Threads is committed to making nutrition and cooking education programs an integral part of childhood education for all.
