Calling All Chefs, Chefs Move To School Program Needs You
I can officially announce my partnership with Trinity Catholic Academy (Brockton, MA) in the First Ladys call for chefs to help fight childhood obesity in the United States.
An excerpt from the Chefs Move To School blog
"We are going to need everyone's time and talent to solve the childhood obesity epidemic and our Nation's chefs have tremendous power as leaders on this issue because of their deep knowledge of food and nutrition and their standing in the community. I want to thank them for joining the Let's Move! Campaign"
- First Lady Michelle Obama
Chefs across the country are answering Mrs. Obama's call to get involved with their local schools as part of the Chefs Move to Schools initiative, run through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The First Lady is calling on chefs to get involved by adopting a school and working with teachers, parents, school nutritionists and administrators to help educate kids about food and nutrition.
I am thrilled to be a part of this program and will update you with pictures and thoughts from my experience throughout the school year.
