Promotes plant-based entrees & nutrition/environmental education
CHSF introduces plant-based foods and nutrition education in schools to educate the whole school community about health and the food/environment connection. We started out by writing a NYS legislative resolution for healthy plant-based (vegan) entrees and nutrition education in schools which passed unanimously in 2004. The coalition has developed recipes which have been distributed to 25,000 schools nationwide, a Family and Consumer Sciences Cooking curriculum, a 3 – 5th grade curriculum called Food UnEarthed: Uncovering the Truth About Food, and nutrition education resources including Wellness Wakeup Call and Feel Good Food Cards.
