Sustainable Nutrition And Community Connection


SNACC is a hands-on food education program focusing on cooking skills, wellness, and community connections.

 SNACC exposes students to culinary arts, international cuisines, and nutrition knowledge through an experiential approach to food education and wellness.

SNACC serves middle and high school students living in the South Bronx. Our students live in district 15, one of the most underserved congressional districts in the U.S.

Modern Kitchen

SNACC's Virtual Kitchen

As a result of COVID-19,  we made significant changes to our program model. In Fall 2019 we relaunched our weekly cooking programming via Zoom.  Our virtual initiative provides each student with their own kitchen supply starter kit as well as weekly ingredients sent directly to their homes to use at each session. At each session, students prepare at least four portions of nourishing meals to enjoy with their families.

Our Impact

Based on an evaluation of the program from last school year:

  • 82% of our students reported that they now help out more often in the kitchen

  • 82% of our students reported that they learned how to eat healthier through the SNACC program

  • 90% of SNACC parents reported that their child is more confident and capable in the kitchen

  • 90% of families reported that the SNACC food has helped reduce stress around putting food on the table

  • 100% of our students reported that the food they prepare is used and eaten by themselves and their families throughout the week.


Your support helps ensure that our students have access to weekly grocery deliveries and programming. 
Words from the Community

“I wanted to thank you on behalf of my family for the food sent during this quarantine. My husband and I were out of work and after several attempts, only my husband was able to access unemployment insurance, so we were in trouble. My son Miguel waits for his food box every Friday. He knows that our meals will arrive that day. With all my heart, my family and I thank you.”
