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.
They’re not only making chicken chili, corn cakes, and kale salad with lemon vinaigrette. They’re learning science, technology, engineering, and math; how to listen to each other; how to inform their opinions and share them respectfully; how to make smart choices for their health; and the unwavering importance of etiquette, manners and the joy of eating with others.

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 after-school 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.
