Chefs Move to Schools
Most school lunch programs in this country are abysmal, to say the least. But with an outstanding spokesperson in the White House, Michelle Obama, who has spearheaded the Let's Move Program, one can only hope that our next generation of eaters will be more conscious of what they put in their mouths.
Chef Gray, along with other great chefs, have stood behind her efforts with their participation in the Chef's Move to School branch of her program. By adopting a school, Murch Elementary School to be exact, Chef Gray hopes to make kids active participants in where their food comes from; there by making them more excited to eat those fruits and veggies parents are always trying to convince them to eat.
Just this past Saturday Chef Gray, along with his son Harrison, spoke to "A Chef's Table with Jim Colman" about the importance of this program and teaching our children good eating habits from day 1.
