Who’s Next because: A graduate of the Le Cordon Bleu culinary program at the Orlando Culinary Academy, Norelli is now Director of Culinary Operations at the Vetri Community Partnership where she has a special focus on healthy eating and healthy living. She works directly with schools to help them serve better lunches to their students à la the Eatiquette program, a school lunch program that has kids eating nutrient-rich scratch-made meals at round tables in a family-style fashion. Under her direction, Vetri Community Partnership has grown to partner with more than 45 schools in Philadelphia and Camden. She also teaches an introductory culinary arts training class to eighth and ninth-grade students at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center. The person who nominated her said: “Her can-do attitude and health focus has been a driving force in VCP’s expansion over the past year and a half.”
