HFSI De-Mythifying K-12 Food

Our elementary and secondary school food experiences are a formative introduction to the food system. In fact, they’re some of the most influential outside our home food experiences. But the narrative around K-12 food service is often negative. What could a school lunch look like in the US? The City of Cambridge Public Schools and the Chef Ann Foundation join the Harvard Food Systems Initiative on Wednesday, November 30 at 4:30pm ET to talk about how they are creating conversation-leading, delicious, sustainable meals for school children and what’s possible with a food systems mindset.

Sunny Tang, Food Literacy Project Fellow and student at Harvard College, will provide context for the conversation by sharing about her work with Food Lab for Kids, a student-run organization that aims to engage young students in the sciences through the lens of cooking as well as teach them about how to cook to create a healthy, nutritious lifestyle.
