Support our Curriculum to Educate Children: Delicious Nutritious Adventures

Benefits of Donating:

Purple Asparagus’ flagship program- Delicious Nutritious Adventures- provides interactive and fun nutrition education classes. It is currently in place in numerous Chicago Public Schools and we’re actively seeking new volunteers. However, because of limits on our resources we currently have a wait list  If you would like to help bring Delicious Nutritious Adventures to new schools, please support us.

Your donation today will educate children, families and the community about eating that’s good for the body and the planet. Your donation will support our work and bring nutritious hands-on adventures to schools, community organizations and farmers’ markets throughout Chicagoland. Your donation will be spent directly on our programs and will create lasting change.

  • $5,000 will fund an entire Delicious Nutritious Adventures program at one school for one year

Provide a Child with 9 months of Delicious Nutritious Adventures:

One donation of $55 can give a child 9 months of Delicious Nutritious Adventures. This donation directly supports a student’s quest to learn about food that’s good for the body and the planet through our flagship program in public schools across the Chicagoland area.

This is a great opportunity to directly support a child as they embark on Delicious Nutritious Adventures.

Thank you! We’re Grateful for your Support!
