By WorldLink Staff | March 4, 2014 | 1 Comment

School LunchWhy does school food matter? Kathleen de Chadenèdes, director of the Orfalea Foundation’s School Food Initiative, explains how meals can make a difference and what can be done to change the way children eat.
What is the School Food Initiative and what is your vision?

The mission of the School Food Initiative is to empower the public schools of Santa Barbara County to implement and sustain nourishing cook-from-scratch food service operations. We envision that given our inputs of culinary training for food service workers, grants for equipment and infrastructure, ongoing technical support by a team of chefs in the field and garden-based food literacy education, school food service operations will be financially viable, students will be offered appealing, nutritious food choices and food literacy will be a valued part of a student’s education.
