Our Mission

At the John Tavares Foundation, we are committed to inspiring the next generation to build a better world for themselves and the generations that follow. We believe every child should have an equal opportunity to realize their full potential and shape their own future.

Our mission is to help kids everywhere understand the importance of proper nutrition and embrace healthy lifestyle options that fuel both their passions and potential. By equipping them with essential resources we can support their physical, cognitive and emotional well-being.

Join our movement, as we empower families to strengthen their connection to the community by turning moments into lifelong memories.

A better world is possible when our children realize their full potential and aspire to shape their own future.
