Every Kid Can Cook Kid Ambassador Program

The Kid Ambassador Program is a nutrition leadership program for Elementary and Middle School students all around the nation. The program empowers students to teach their peers about the mental, physical and psychological benefits of eating healthy.

Students in the program will participate in a 2-3-hour long peer-led activity each month that will be facilitated by one staff or PTA member and that will serve to help existing programs, events or classroom lesson plans.
