Wellness in the Schools

13 May

Wellness in the Schools (WITS) is non-profit that has planted itself directly in the battlefield of the current food fight in schools—cafeterias. The organization brings a WITS Cook in Residence to participating schools to work with cafeteria staff to provide additional healthy and from scratch options for kids and bridge the distance between lunchroom and classroom with in-class food lessons. We’re a sponsor and restaurant partner of WITS. Additionally, several WITS Cooks in Residence are graduates of The French Culinary Institute’s Classic Culinary Arts program, including Robin Hom at our sponsored school PS 126. We’re on the ground with Robin and the cafeteria team working toward innovative solutions to challenges that cafeteria staffs face.

Follow our efforts in and out of the cafeteria at PS 126 on The Lunch Box. Check out photos from a recent lunch day at PS 126 on our Flickr page.
