Last year, our Live. Give. Run. Foundation began partnering with a local Baltimore non-profit called TasteWise Kids. Their mission is to empower children of all ages to think about food in new ways, to explore their own sense of taste, and to realize that flavorful, nutritious food and good health go together. Through engaging programming with a fun, interdisciplinary approach, TasteWise Kids is working to foster healthy eating habits among young people, regardless of background, so they may learn to make better food choices into adulthood.
Two of Live. Give. Run.’s core goals are to support our youth and to encourage people of all ages to lead healthy lifestyles – this is why we’re so excited about what TasteWise Kids is doing.
To celebrate Women’s History Month, we wanted to share what the team of women who lead TasteWise Kids are doing! They have gathered special recipes passed down from woman to woman in an effort to grow the connections between women, food, and each other.
We encourage all our Charm City Run women to learn and cook one of these recipes with a girl or woman in your life, or to send us something your learned from an awesome lady! TasteWise Kids Executive Director Wendy Jeffries has shared the first recipe: a now three generations old recipe for Irish Soda Bread (perfect for getting ready for the Under Armour Kelly Benefits St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock 5K!). Funny enough this particular recipe all starts with an Italian grandmother who knew nothing about Irish cooking, but with love and determination this delectable St. Patrick’s Day treat came to be. Check out the recipe here!
