SCHOOLS and FOOD: Innovation, Opportunity and Wellness
Panels, workshops, resource fair
Saturday, April 1 9:30 am - 6 pm
The Graduate Center, CUNY 365 Fifth Ave (34th St)
A movement to improve food in schools is accelerating across the country. Fueled by concerns about the nutritional health of children, childhood obesity, and the intrusion of commercially branded foods and beverages into the school environment, the movement is attracting advocates from the realms of foodservice, education, public health, agriculture, and an increasingly vocal community of parents.
Join us for stories about the challenges, successes and proven strategies for implementing change in the school food environment from pre-k through college, from experts, practitioners and activists. Presentations will include: the latest research, the most current legislation, inspiring local and state policies, new menu items from New York City SchoolFood, effective food, nutrition and gardening-based curricula, tool kits for advocacy, farm to school and college programs, and how to build coalitions for change.
Cosponsored by the Baum Forum, a program of conferences and seminars held periodically to focus public and restaurant industry attention on food and farming issues and the Department of Continuing Education and Public Programs at The Graduate Center (CUNY).
