Curriculum Resources (and more!) for Enrolling Your Own “Citizen Chefs”

Welcome to the Club!” cries the title of Freelance Writer Melissa Reichley’s piece for the biggest-ever June/July 2017 edition of School Nutrition. Reichley’s article for Ideas at Work—innovative initiatives to co-opt and implement in your own programs—features Amanda Warren, school nutrition program supervisor for Staunton City (Va.) Schools and her Citizen Chefs Community Café program, an indisputable success that has students learning what healthy meals are for themselves while coking and testing recipes for their fellow students. In the links below, you’ll find Warren’s student/parent cooking waiver, the list of responsibilities (modeled for student innovation), and an example curriculum to get you off the ground.
