A New Toolkit for "Chefs Move to Schools"
Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) announced a partnership with All-Clad and several kitchen equipment retailers that will help get schools and chefs started by providing them free cookware kits. PHA will offer these kits to 1,000 schools that have matched with a chef through the Chefs Move to Schools. The kits include induction burners, stainless steel pots and pans, and knives and utensils. The toolkit will also include a booklet with important guidance on how chefs can help their school become a Healthier US Challenge school, suggestions for cooking demos along with other helpful information. Schools and chefs should use the kits for cooking demonstrations that inspire young minds, and to illustrate the innovative ways kids can prepare meals that are both nutritious and tasty.
