     Name: Sonya Owens
     From: Allston, MA

     Nominated By: Curlene Thomas

Sonya works at the Commonwealth Tenants Association as the Youth Program Director. She created various programs such as the "Kids In The Kitchen" program where they incorporate math into baking and cooking. It allows the kids to bring home their individual dishes they prepared, as dinner or dessert for their families. There is also the "Green Earth Sustainability" program which provides each child with the basic principles of going green, and community service where each child plants their own vegetables to use in the "Kids In The Kitchen" recipes. In addition to the program, the children also plant a vegetable for an elderly member of the community. The organization prides themselves on showing the children healthier and alternative food choices.

Ms. Owens encourages the kids that they can still have their favorite foods, and shows them how to make healthier versions of their favorite dishes by incorporating fruits and vegetables into their recipes. Ms. Sonya Owens is also a great cook and is famous for her delicious healthy salad.
