The Charlie Cart Project is an all-in-one, hands-on food education and nutrition program for any learning environment.
Here's what’s included:
Educators from 150 organizations in 38 states are active in the program, teaching basic cooking skills in their communities and transforming lives with hands-on food education.
We’ve got to educate the next generation about the connections between food, health and the environment if we hope to solve the major challenges of our time. The Charlie Cart is the right idea at the right time to introduce this kind of education into schools everywhere.
When cooking is integrated into the curriculum, academic subject come alive, and students effortlessly absorb their lessons.
The Charlie Cart Project will help make science more real and interesting and memorable than most standard curricula do – and just as importantly, it will encourage students to think about what they eat.
I serve on the Charlie Cart Project Advisory Board because I honor Charlie Cart’s integrated educational program that connects children to food and cooking. As someone who started cooking as a child, I am privileged to help lay the foundation for a generation of healthy kids.
