Our programs are grass roots, community based.  It is the goal of Feed A Healthy Mind to go from community to community first locally and then globally to spread our message to ensure everyone has a fighting chance at a healthier future.


Our founder, Melissa Sherwood, is a culinary instructor whose passion is working with children of all ages to teach healthy eating, nutrition and cooking to combat obesity and diabetes.    Melissa has seen the need for nutritional outreach to school aged children and has been teaching classes for the past seven years in, public and private schools, daycare centers, home school groups and as an instructor at Anne Arundel Community College. 

Together we can stop childhood hunger, decrease the rates of childhood diabetes and obesity.  Volunteer today and start making a difference in a child's life.
