I had a great interview yesterday with Dan Marek, the the School Programs Manager for the Whole Kids Foundation. Dan trains teachers and food service providers in healthy food preparation, through the Whole Kids Foundation’s Healthy Teachers Program and Healthy Food Service Program. It is a great program that inspires both teachers and school food service providers with knowledge about nutrition and healthy cooking techniques, so that they can be healthy role models for their students, improve the school lunch program by cooking from scratch, and be change agents in their own communities. The Whole Kids Foundation also gives out grants to schools, so they can start an organic garden. The application process is open now through October 31st, so if you want to apply, get those applications in. They also give out grants to learn about pollinators and to raise bees, and to install salad bars in the cafeteria.
