Yesterday Ron went to school at PS 59 in Brooklyn to participate in City Harvest’s Cooking Matter’s for Kids program to give a few hours of his time. This program engages elementary school students in cooking healthy meals and promoting a healthy lifestyle. Ron was there to celebrate their graduation of the program and share his healthy fruit crisp recipe and cooking tips with the students.
Ron and the kids worked together in the school cafeteria cutting apples and mixing a delicious streusel topping made with corn flakes, oats & chocolate chips. Ron assisted the students in cutting, mixing and measuring. I think what impressed us the most was the information the students were being taught. One of the many things these students learned is how to read labels on boxed foods you find in the supermarket. Knowledge is power people – these youngsters take this information home to their parents and help them food shop, bringing a healthy eating lifestyle to the whole family.
