Our Mobile Teaching Kitchen visited First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School. We taught students how to make sweet potatoes, greens & cabbage and Share Food Program had all of the ingredients for sale at affordable prices.
Vetri Community Partnership was founded in 2008 by chef Marc Vetri and restaurateur Jeff Benjamin to help kids experience the connection between healthy eating and healthy living.
A 501c3 nonprofit organization, Vetri Community Partnership empowers children and families to lead healthy lives through fresh food, hands-on experiences and education.
How do you encourage kids to eat more healthy food? By teaching them to cook tasty, nutritious, kid-friendly recipes with ingredients they can find in their own neighborhoods. GSK is supporting Vetri Cooking Lab with a $440,000 grant that will expand the program to 30 after-school sites across Philadelphia and Camden.
Vetri Community Partnership partners with schools to help them bring scratch-made, family-style meals to their students' school lunch program.
Eatiquette aims to transform a child's lunch from the traditional cafeteria assembly line to an environment where children gather around round tables, pass plates of food to one another and experience social interaction and communication.
Vetri Cooking Lab is an out-of-school-time program for students in 4th through 6th grade that focuses on cooking, nutrition and food education featuring STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) core concepts.
Getting kids involved in the kitchen is a great way to help them learn cooking skills and encourage them to try new things.
Partner with us as we strive to help more children experience the connection between healthy eating and healthy living.
