Brooke Jackman Foundation Launches Brooke's Cooks,

New Initiative to Promote Healthy Living



The Brooke Jackman Foundation is thrilled to announce the launch of Brooke's Cooks! Our newest initiative is designed to promote literacy, learning and family, while encouraging healthy living among at-risk children and their families in the New York City area.    


The first Brooke's Cooks event was held on Thursday, July 31, with nearly 50 children ages five-12 and their families at the St. Nick's Alliance in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Click here to view highlights from the day!

With programming led by Spoons Across America, attendees engaged in a discussion about eating seasonally and locally, and the children learned how to properly measure ingredients and cut safely.The group then made a salad and homemade vinaigrette with fresh ingredients, including vegetables and herbs the children picked from the St. Nicks garden. Each child also went home with a copy of Salad People by Molly Katzen as well as a handout with nutritious recipes to make at home with their families.


Through Brooke's Cooks, the Brooke Jackman Foundation hopes to continue inspiring children to live a literate life. The next Brooke's Cooks event will be held on Thursday, October 9, at the YM&YWHA in Washington Heights. Another event is being planned in November.
