"Raddish was designed to prepare kids for all stages of a delicious life: arming them with the culinary confidence to help their parents make dinner, to bake muffins for a neighbor, and ultimately feed themselves well as adults," said Samantha Barnes, Founder/CEO of Raddish Kids. "We’re thrilled to offer these children this opportunity and are grateful for our partner Challenge Butter who recognizes the value and importance of teaching kids to cook."

"Raddish is inspiring and enabling the next generation of home cooks and we couldn’t be more honored to support this program," said Lisa Totah, Director of Marketing for Challenge Dairy Products, Inc. "These children will use these skills for the rest of their lives, and we are honored to play a role in their culinary journey."

The Raddish Kids Culinary Scholarship is part of its stewardship program, which aims to show love through food and the act of cooking, bring families together and build community. Over the years, Raddish has provided support to communities in need, donating 50,000 kits to families suddenly homeschooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic and more than $100,000 to partner charities such as World Central Kitchen – the organization founded by Chef José Andrés that uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond.
