rogueApron joins Chef to School program

rogueApron is excited to announce a forthcoming partnership with the Chef to School program. Basically: food-loving chefs and cooks show kids that local vegetables are delicious with in-school cooking demonstrations. The kids love exploring their senses through food and getting involved with prep – and they are way more likely to grow up to make healthy food choices!

Many individual programs are getting started … partnerships where schools have local gardens, and ones in which kids have very little access to fresh food.

rogueApron will be planning some alliances soon, so be on the lookout for opportunities to join us.

Thanks go to Nichole Lupo and Seth Freedman, of Seeds of Nutrition, and Erin Croom, the Farm to School coordinator for Georgia Organics for their hard work in organizing! It’s a great program – if you’d like to get involved, email Nichole Lupo at nlupo@mendezfoundation.org!
