Chefs Move to Schools
The American Culinary Federation (ACF)
along with the School Nutrition Association (SNA) are leading a new coalition of top
culinary, nutrition and school organizations to oversee the Chefs Move to
Schools program. The program pairs chefs with interested schools in their
communities to work with teachers, parents
and school nutrition professionals to help educate kids about food and nutrition. The goal of the program is to promote
chefs as the catalyst for creating a new nation of child food advocates
and start turning the tide on unhealthy eating behaviors.
