I’m so grateful to Hannah Piercey and Emilie Gioia, my friends and colleagues at the Edible Schoolyard Project, for highlighting our work on their incredible network.
Can you believe that kids will go crazy for kale? My good friend, Chef Annie Hanrahan, knows it’s true. On the Edible Schoolyard Project Network News today, Chef Annie shares her interview with me about the Wellness in the Schools (WITS) Kale Cooking Labs we piloted together at Lu Sutton Elementary this fall.
Want to find out how that kale magic happens in a WITS Cooking Lab? Read Annie’s full article and interview with me on the Edible Schoolyard Network News today. And if you’re curious about how we’ll expand the WITS Cooking Labs at Lu Sutton Elementary and in the Novato Unified School District, we’re so proud to announce that we’ve just received the Growing Leaders Fund grant from The Culinary Trust of the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals), which will help us make this expansion happen. Once you start an organic vegetable movement with kids, it’s impossible to stop their joy and appetite for learning more–thank goodness!
