Chefs In Schools: Feeding Child Health & Wellness
The Culinary Institute of Virginia was invited to participate in First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign and attend a meeting on the South Lawn of the White House last summer. Chef Jonathan Highfield was at the meeting designed to get culinary students involved in the Chefs Move to Schools component of the First Lady’s campaign. Those students serve as Food and Nutrition Ambassadors to schools in the Hampton Roads region. On this month's "What's Cookin'" program, Chef Highfield joins us along with our favorite foodie Patrick Evans-Hylton as we talk about initiatives in our area to keep our children healthy and instill good eating habits.
