The Eatiquette program is the Vetri Foundation’s initiative to bring healthy, family-style lunches to school cafeterias all over greater Philadelphia. CBS recently wrote about the program’s first entrance into a public school after years at charter schools, at Zeigler Elementary in northeast Philadelphia:

“The famous restaurateur has made inroads at charter schools in recent years, dishing out freshly made, nutritious meals.

Today, he rolled out his initiative for the first time at a Philadelphia public school, Ziegler Elementary.

‘We would like to take this out to the entire school district,’ Vetri said today.

He says his process affects not only what the kids are eating, but how they’re eating it.

‘They’re eating around a round table, which lets them interact with each other a little bit more,’ he explained.”
