Unique focus on healthy eating and culinary fundamentals


“LIFT Enrichment’s Culinary Workshops have been a great experience.  The students are getting an introduction to eating healthy foods with hands on experiences.  (This) real world experience is the key to the development of each student."

Susan Shaw, Teacher Specialist, Pomona Unified School District

“The culinary workshops for our ASES program were fantastic!  Kids tried new foods and embraced them! They are more engaged with their families at the grocery store and help out in the kitchen at home.  The kids can’t wait for the new set of recipes each school year!"

Adria Jefferson, Business Manager, Keiller Leadership Academy
