Think AHEAD Model
At the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative, we believe in building a strong community around healthy food habits. All of our participants learn that everyone can enjoy healthy food if they take the time to practice the skills to cook, and even grow, their own food.
To do this, we teach the Think AHEAD model with every recipe.
Youth in our food education squads developed this concept a few years back and it has proven to be a useful tool in getting people to take the leap towards a healthier life. The letters in AHEAD stand for Affordable, Healthy, Easy, Accessible, and Delicious. This means that every ingredient in each of AUNI’s tried-and-true recipes will meet these criteria. The outcome is a tasty and nutritious meal that won’t break the bank!
