By Kevin Kelly
Eating nutritious meals is essential for young minds that are in the process of learning. Eating while learning might be even better.
A Menlo Park kindergarten classroom since March has been doubling as a mobile kitchen pumping out fresh meals for kids and their parents. That’s thanks to Charlie Cart, described as a mobile kitchen classroom that connects lessons in math, science, social studies and language arts with cooking and food preparation. Charlie Cart was founded in 2014 by Carolyn Federman, who previously worked on Alice Waters’ Edible Schoolyard Project in Berkeley.
