Spoons Across America is kicking off our 2012-2013 program year in the NYC public schools and we invite YOU to volunteer!We are seeking adults who are passionate about food and healthy eating and who want to share their passion with children. Chefs, food professionals, culinary students, nutritionists, farmers, retirees, teachers, and more- we want you!
Our first program of the year, Take a Taste with Spoons: Apples, will be held October 22- October 26. Through this program, students learn about the elements of taste, sample locally grown apple varieties, and take an apple recipe home to share with their families. These activities are designed to celebrate fresh, local, and seasonal food and encourage direct and long lasting connections with locally grown produce and farmers. We are looking for volunteers to help implement curriculum in 3rd grade classrooms across New York City.
Register online today and we will contact you with details. Can’t volunteer the week of October 22nd but still want to help? Fill out a registration form to keep up-to-date on future opportunities.
I am volunteering to work with Karen Blake of Sesame Workshop to attend the food tasting at the school in Hamilton Heights. I am also an employee of the Workshop and I believe Karen spoke with Stacy yesterday.
