The food insecurity rates for Miami-Dade residents exceed the national rates with 15.3% of residents being food insecure and 26% of households with children being food insecure, higher than the 20% national average. (Feedingamerica.org)

Cooking Matters classes help these food insecure children and families in Miami shop for and prepare healthy, tasty meals on a limited budget.

FLIPANY is the lead Florida partner of the Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters® programs and has served 935 youth, teens and parents last year alone, connecting families with food.
