Strengthening Nutrition Empowerment

Recipe for Success Teams up with Growing High Point



Growing High Point's Farm to Senior Produce Program partnered with Recipe for Success, which donated recipe cards and smart shopping brochures, adding a valuable layer of support to Growing High Point's initiative, aligning seasonal produce deliveries with practical resources. The resources were delivered to 21 senior citizens, along with fresh sweet potatoes, butternut squash, green and red peppers, beets, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, apples and a red onion. These recipes correlate with the seasonal produce that Growing High Point delivers 51 weeks of the year to food-insecure seniors in High Point.


Recipe for Success is a leader in nutritional education. As a key part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed), Recipe for Success receives vital support from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Based at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Department of Anthropology, their mission connects with the community by offering important nutrition, health, cooking, meal planning, and gardening educational programs tailored for low-income, SNAP-receiving, and SNAP-eligible households.


The impactful initiatives of Recipe for Success are widely spread, engaging with Title 1 Public Schools, youth education centers, senior centers, public libraries, and residential communities. Their multifaceted curricula and programs prioritize health and wellness, equipping individuals and communities with foundational, sustainable food skills and knowledge.
