Did You Know?
25% of Chicago’s children are overweight or obese.
In our low-income communities as many as 70% of children may be obese. These children are at greater risk for respiratory illness, diabetes, and heart disease, among other conditions.
Purple Asparagus is working to fight this epidemic, but we can’t do it alone. Please join us. Your donation will enable Purple Asparagus to introduce even more kids across Chicago to food that is healthy AND delicious.
What your gift can do…
- $5,000 will fund an entire Delicious Nutritious Adventures program at one school for one year
- $1,000 will provide one month’s take home materials for all of our Delicious Nutritious Adventures
- $500 will take nearly 90 children on a Delicious Nutritious Adventure
- $250 will allow us to expand our Delicious Nutritious Adventures curriculum with two new lesson plans
- $100 will provide tasting ingredients for one month’s Delicious Nutritious Adventures for 90 children
- $50 will pay for ingredient costs for one class
- Gifts of any amount are appreciated and support Purple Asparagus’ programming.
Thank you! We’re Grateful for your Support!
