A Unique Approach to Affordable and Sustainable Eating: Teaching Kids to Cook

A Unique Approach to Affordable and Sustainable Eating: Teaching Kids to Cook

Podcast March 9, 2021 by Regional Pulse Podcast

Michelle Martinich, Chief Financial Officer, sits down with Nancy Martz, Executive Director of Apples to Zucchini Cooking School, to learn about her nonprofit initiative to tackle hunger on the Central Coast one child at a time, by providing the tools kids need to prepare delicious, nutritious, affordable meals made from real food for their families. Whether teaching at an after-school program, a treatment home for youth-in-transition, or a backyard birthday party, the Apples to Zucchini Cooking School philosophy is the same: Cook together, eat together and clean up together.

Nancy Martz has been involved with non-profits for almost 20 years, helping start three non-profits, sitting on several boards, and volunteering much of her time for causes that matter to her.
