    Triskeles Foundation - Food for Thought ProgramAll of us eat, but few eat well. Understanding, appreciating, and knowing how to choose and prepare food which is delicious and healthy are skills learned through experience. Food for Thought can be that experience. Triskeles’ Food for Thought Program actively engages youth, ages 13-17, in outdoor, hands-on experiences involving organic agriculture and nutritional activities to learn how to make healthy food choices for living healthier lives! Our main constituency is a diverse group of hard-working young teens who are interested in the world. Food for Thought reaches these young people just as they are starting to make their own food choices and are heavily targeted by the fast food/junk food industries - a significant factor in why the adolescent obesity statistics, along with their associated diseases, are so alarmingly high. We have seen that when youth get fully involved with their hands and hearts, lessons learned really stick and have a lasting impact far beyond what can be taught in a classroom alone. Youth are learning skills and making connections which they’ll use all their lives, making an impact in the rapidly-growing local organic food movement, having fun, and earning stipends for their work. Food for Thought is primarily a summer program in the greater Phoenixville, PA area.Chester*Main Site (The Triskeles Foundation)Triskeles Foundation
