The Sips & Kicks Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing and instilling positive eating habits through fruit and vegetable smoothies and by encouraging fun, vigorous play through professionaly led soccer instruction. As a result of COVID-19, Sips & Kicks has had to revamp our traditional program and pivot to a virtual offering. We are deeply concerned that tens of thousands of our youth participants have been deprived of a consistent source of fruit and vegetables and consistent vigorous play . Data shows that maintaining a healthy lifestyle, particulary during times of extreme stress, is essential to a child’s emotional, mental, and physical well-being.
Sips & Kicks has activated our Covid-19 plan and has been delivering our smoothies, adding hearty soups for the fall/winter, and offering virtual play through online workouts to support our youth and community. We are working with our NYC/NJ school partners and community partners, like Table to Table, Center for Food Action, and local homeless shelters, to impact as many of our program participants and community members.

Your donation of any amount will help us provide these nutritious fruit and vegetable smoothies and hearty soups to feed and nourish our youth participants, school partners, and the communities where we serve. Preparation and delivery of 15,000 smoothies, along with the development of our on-line virtual health & welness platform, will cost $20,000.
