Full Circle Kitchen  
The Emeril Lagasse Foundation Full Circle Kitchen helps provide skills and additional sources of food to some of the most at-risk students in Okaloosa and Walton counties by providing a variety of classes. The Full Circle Kitchen program provides a fully funcitonal teaching kitchen in a safe learning environment for students to learn cooking skills from local restaurant partners and chefs.  A grant from the Emeril Lagasse Foundation will support capital needs, operating expenses and programming efforts associated with the program’s newly constructed teaching kitchen.

“The Full Circle Kitchen was created to help provide skills and additional sources of food to some of the most at-risk students in Okaloosa and Walton counties by providing a variety of classes - some open to the public, and some life skills classes available for students,” says Tiffanie Nelson, Founder & Executive Director of Food For Thought. “When guests purchase tickets to the Thoughtful Dinner Series, that ticket helps pay for a child to attend classes in the future. A class that provides skills, food, and a new way to engage with others. Our first student classes have been a huge success and the kids can’t wait for the next class.”

Food For Thought now has five ways to provide hunger relief - weekly backpacks during the school year for students receiving free or reduced lunches to close the gap of missed meals over the weekend, monthly snacks provided to teachers in schools receiving Food For Thought services to fight immediate signs of hunger, holiday services to help feed families in need during long breaks from school including summer, garden initiatives at select schools and at the Destin Pantry, and now the Full Circle Kitchen to help provide skills and additional sources of food to some of the most at-risk students in Okaloosa and Walton counties.

As Food For Thought continues to grow, support from the community is needed more now than ever. The local nonprofit expects to grow by over 50% and take on 6 new schools and reach over 2,500 students during the 2017-2018 school year. If you or someone you know would like to donate time, funds, or services to Food For Thought Outreach please email or visit

Food For Thought is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization based in Santa Rosa Beach, FL that provides backpacks filled with healthy, easy to prepare food for students who are dependent on free or reduced school meals. Our goal is to support a child’s development and educational experience by bridging the gap between school meals during weekends and holiday breaks.  Food For Thought has been working to fight child hunger since 2010, and in the 2017-2018 school year will serve 29 schools in Walton and Okaloosa Counties, providing backpacks for 2,500 students each week.
