Listen to Bhavani on NPR Talk about Healthy School Food

“President Trump plans to loosen Obama-era school lunch requirements, claiming they make it difficult for cooks to make lunches that kids want to eat. Bhavani Jaroff, chef, educator, food activist, and Daniel Giusti, former head chef of Noma and founder of Brigaid, discuss whether school lunch can follow federal guidelines, stay on budget, and be tasty, too.”

Long Island Cares Celebrates World Food Day With Bhavani Jaroff

“For World Food Day 2017, Long Island Cares invited Bhavani Jaroff to our kitchen to demonstrate delicious meal prep and discuss clean eating. The talented chef, food educator, and radio host has been eating vegetarian since she was sixteen and working as a chef since college. While attending art school, Bhavani found her artistry in the kitchen. As one of the few vegetarians on campus, she found her meal plan was limited and took action to promote more flavorful choices for vegetarians on campus.”

 Serving Food With a Healthy Portion of Love

“For Bhavani, the link between cooking and social consciousness is deeply important. Since 1993, she has organized and served a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal to the homeless in Rufus King Park in Queens, NY. Last year, over 600 less fortunate people savored a feast prepared by 125 volunteers. This annual ritual is one that brings people together, volunteering their time and skills, in service to their community. Bhavani recognizes the sacred potential of food and cooking to bring people together, and to challenge social injustice, economic unfairness and food inequality.”
