We work to create healthy deliciousness with kids in schools and in communities.
We impact the supply of healthy food by developing food products that are sold to schools.
We impact the demand for healthy food through experiential learning and working directly with kids in schools creating good food.
We create food that’s good and nutritious at the same time. Food can be healthy, but not good. It can be kind of hard to find a food that is healthy and delicious at the same time. So we create it. Healthy deliciousness is also fun, engaging learning about nutritious foods.
The life of eating as kid is very unhealthy. Snacks that are affordable in corner stores are not nutritious, and commercials are everywhere. Many kids think school food is nasty, even though it’s available to all kids. We want to be the change in our community. We are young people that are creating products that are healthy, affordable, and tasty and get it to kids in schools.
I am learning the ins and outs of a business which adds to my personal knowledge. Also, I learned to create opportunities for myself and take on difficult obstacles. The most important thing I will carry with me is Youth Power because Rebel Ventures is not Rebel Ventures without all of dedicated high school students.
I like the Rebel Crumbles because they are a healthy breakfast. Some mornings I’m running late to school so on my walk in this is a quick breakfast I can eat so I’m not starving and I can learn. The fact that they’re made by high school students inspires me because it makes me feel it’s something I can do now or in the near future.
What do we do next? My students were SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!! This could also be part of our project-based learning. One child, who has behavior problem, began formulating his ideas right then and there. I had to let him do some research, right in the moment, because something in him came to life! We need this!!!!!
