By being a member of the teaching kitchen collaborative, we've been able to focus on the things that we do well, like food, and tap into the expertise of all of the other members on things like outcomes based research.Compass Group
It's just been fabulous, hearing from all of the other members, the discussions, the collaborations and the opportunities we have going forward to work as teams and across institutions all over the country.Dartmouth-Hitchcock
Us doing this individually won't have as big of an impact as us coming together to really share and learn and implement our learnings in developing the best practices and looking at what are some research models that we can do. that is going to be powerful.MaineGeneral
The benefit of being part of the collaborative is that it really helps us to resource good information so I see it as not just a network of people collaborating together but I think it will really be a rich database for us to access some of the research that's going on. It is a network, too, so the ability to develop relationships with people around tbe country...for that matter, around the world...is an opportunity that I think we couldn't have gotten anywhere else.Hackensack Meridian Health
I think the capacity for multi-site research trials around food and mindful living and exercise and movement is enormous...to be able to scale up...as opposed to one kitchen if we're thirty...and then sixty...and one hundred...the capacity to reach so many more kids and families...University of Cincinnati
