Food brings us together. It makes us human, nourishes us and lifts our spirit. Treehouse is brilliantly harnessing the power of food to help children in foster care, and local restaurants. Stir Up Some Love is a gift to our community. Let’s get cooking!

I can’t wait to buy a series and learn how to cook from the best chefs around! My kids and I are going to be cooking some delicious food together while we lift up three generations of Treehouse neighbors.

Stir Up Some Love is such a great concept! Pure Treehouse. Shining a light on our region’s outstanding chefs, teaching us all how to cook and tapping into the generosity of folks who want to support their neighbors.

What better way to learn to cook than from these chefs in our community? Support them and the innovative work that the Treehouse Foundation does for foster kids at the same time! I’m glad I get to sample these fantastic dishes from the chefs.  I’ll let you know how good they are!

Food is community.  I love that Treehouse uses the power of community to nurture kids and connect them with elders. My hope is to contribute food--a daily bread--to make and to share.

Family is strong, community plus family is stronger. If I can help the Treehouse children, community and mission by using my cooking skills, that for me is a gift.

I love the good energy that Stir Up Some Love brings to the Valley! It’s a win-win-win. Great for the restaurants, excellent for viewers and wonderful for Treehouse.

To me food is the ultimate human connection because everyone needs it. Being able to share my recipes and cooking style with people is the best way I can feel connected, and give back to my community.

I learned about Treehouse when they started the community in Easthampton in 2006, and today I’m glad to be supporting it.  Supporting the generations that came before us is essential. People living in a community families and kids, all supporting each other, is a precious thing.

Treehouse is important to me because I have several family members that went through the foster care system. I’m glad to raise awareness and spark change locally that helps change the system.
