About Healthy Living, Inc (HLI):
HLI is a 501(c)3 community-based nonprofit whose mission is to foster a culture of health, one healthy meal at a time. We teach people from all walks of life how to prepare delicious and nutritious food regardless of budgetary constraints.
HLI's healthy cooking outreach & nutrition education takes place through our after-school programs, shelter programs, WIC education programs and numerous other platforms for community engagement that educate 1000s of youth & adults each year. We work in partnerships with organizations such as DCPNI, So Others Might Eat, N Street Village, Bright Beginnings, Inc, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, Concerned Black Men National, DC Department of Health, American Kidney Fund and numerous other public-private partnerships. This past Fall of 2016, we've had some major milestones: We moved into our new HQ at the Historic Thurgood Marshall Center for Service & Heritage. We launched a brand new website! (healthylivinginc.org). We also launched a new full time after-school program with our partner DCPNI in the Mayfair Community of Ward 7.
Our Outreach Community Programs seek to bridge the gap and nurture a culture of health for the most underserved populations in the District of Columbia. HLI's free programs are offered at shelters, youth organizations, schools, community centers and other venues where participants learn the skills to plan and prepare affordable, healthy, natural food. Financial support comes from grants, donations, earned revenue, and from our annual fundraiser.
Join us in Unity: Together we can nourish our communities!
