This summer has been a BLAST! I have been honored with working with Big City Mountaineers. Big City Mountaineers is an amazing organization that we have been supporting through LOVE donations the past three years. They use the LOVE to take on their backpacking trips with their kiddos. Here is a summary of what BCM is all about:
Big City Mountaineers mentors under-resourced urban teens through transformative outdoor experiences to enrich lives, broaden horizons and instill critical life skills.
This summer, in addition to donating loads of LOVE for the campers, we also have been visiting the younger campers and have been teaching them about the importance of eating breakfast and fueling their bodies right! The kids range from 9 to 15 years old. They have all been AMAZING to work with and have LOVED the LOVE!
Below are some sweet pics of us SPREADING the LOVE up at camp!
I am always amazed by how every time we visit a classroom (or a campsite in this case) I leave more rejuvenated and excited. Seeing how open, receptive, and excited these students are to learn about healthy eating is the greatest inspiration. I am so grateful for the impact each of these students has on me…it is what helps propel Love Grown Foods forward!
HUGE THANKS to Big City Mountaineers for providing such incredible programs to these kids and for letting us be a part of their amazing organization!
