There are many under-served communities across the country, including low-income families and members of certain ethnic minorities, facing obstacles to living healthier lifestyles. Because of a wide range of factors such as tighter food budgets, lower nutritional education, and limited access to outdoor play spaces, these communities are at far greater risk for obesity, diabetes and other diet-related illnesses. A Dozen Cousins was founded with the mission to inspire families of all backgrounds to eat better food and enjoy longer, healthier lives.
In addition to making healthy and delicious foods, A Dozen Cousins provides an annual grant (and volunteer support) to non-profit organizations that are working to eliminate socio-economic health disparities in the US.
