We want to give culinary classes to low income population at poor areas of Brazil
Unfortunately to eat healthy became an option only for those that have
money. People that can choose organic, fresh and quality food.
But this has always been one of the great advantages of living in rural and
poor parts of Brazil where people have access to organic food because they
planted it, fresh produce because to go out and buy food was expansive and
took a lot of time. Now all this has changed. To grow is now expansive and
to eat healthy became a possibility only for those who have money.
We want to change this. We want to show how eating healthy is simple, easy
and tasty. We want to share gastronomic and nutritional information to the
population that not even doctors can have access to with ease. Where a
nutritional appointment is impossible.
To grow your own food have stopped being a characteristic of the low income
population to become a luxury to hight income people. Technics of
agroforest, permaculture, growing without GMO`S is now restricted to those
who have the condition to afford it.
We want to share with people how to prepare heathy meals with food found in
the forest and areas near by their homes that don't use them because don't
know that they can be eaten, they don't harvest it because their ancestors
that knew they were not only free but also healthy and delicious, weren't
valued enough that this knowledge was lost.
There are more then 300.000 species of edible plants wasted every day and
people with hunger of nutrients, hunger of information, hunger of attention
we want to bring to the poorest people of this country information that
will not only change thing daily menu but their way of relating to their
surrounding by no longer buying old food, full of GMO`S at the grocery
store to start making their own meals with food available in their
neiborhood at their streets or even at their garden;
We want to mix culinary classes that will teach how to have a healthier,
ecological, natural life so that they can avoid most diseases that are
related with bad eating habits.
WHAT WE NEED…
social media divulgation
people to support the cause
HOW MUCH DOES IT COSTS…
One culinary clarr of 3 hours costs $6/person with all the costs included.
We work with professionals divided by area, many are chefs, nutritionists
and naturopaths doctors at various cities of Brazil. We want to bring them
to the poorest areas and help with organizing speeches, courses, workshops
We have over 50 partners though out Brazil capable of teaching simple and
cheap recipes for low income people from all over Brazil.
