New York, NY (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
KickinKitchen.TV, Ingredients for Education and the New York Common Pantry announce a partnership to bring educational content to the pantry's “Live Healthy!” program this holiday season.
With support from The Heckscher Foundation for Children, KickinKitchen.TV will provide a series of video episodes that encourage healthy cooking and eating and exercise in an urban setting among middle schoolers and young teens. Episodes are also available online (http://www.kickinkitchen.tv). Families will receive holiday recipe postcards with their groceries provided by the pantry and KickinKitchen.TV will promote NY Common Pantry as a worthy place for end-of-year charitable giving in its holiday greetings.
Live Healthy! encourages participants to embrace healthy eating, active living, resiliency skills, and social support to improve overall quality of life.
KickinKitchen.TV has provided Live Healthy! with multimedia that will supplement the pantry’s program curriculum and provide participants with access to their online video database. “We are excited to work with KickinKitchen.TV and look forward to incorporating their fun videos to our participants,” says Sara Bartels, Live Healthy! Program Manager.
“At KickinKitchen.TV, we think everyone should have access to healthy food and nutritional literacy with a dash of music and comedy that celebrates real food. Our partnership with pantry is a recipe for making this happen in NYC,” says KKTV Executive Producer, Natasha Lance Rogoff.
