Spoons Across America ®, “the recipe for healthier children,” is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating children, teachers, and families about the benefits of healthy eating. We work to influence the eating habits of children through hands-on education that celebrates the connection to local farmers and the important tradition of sharing meals around the family table.
Award for Excellence
Created in 2015 to honor individuals dedicated to food education and nutrition literacy, the 2018 Award for Excellence will be given to Andrew Zimmern for his dedication to empowering children and their families to develop healthy relationships with food.
Julia V. Jordan Award for Volunteerism
Created in 2018 to honor volunteers who support educating children, teachers, and families about the benefits of healthy eating. The first Julia V. Jordan Award for Volunteerism will be given to Robert “Chef Bobo” Surles for his commitment to encouraging children to excite all their senses, to taste new foods, and to develop a healthy food curiosity.

Since our founding in 2001, Spoons Across America® has developed a holistic nutrition-based curriculum, for 1st through 5th grades, to ensure that children are empowered to make healthy eating choices. Today, our programs, Spoons Food Explorers, Farm to Book®, Take a Taste with Spoons, Spoons Recipe Days, The Dinner Party Project®, and Spoons Summer Recipe Days, awaken and inspire a lifelong passion in children to explore smarter, more nutritious, and more diverse food choices. We are dedicated to improving children’s relationship with food so that they may enjoy the benefits of healthier bodies, healthier lives, healthier families, and healthier communities.
