Here’s what’s you'll get:

The Charlie Cart program is fully equipped with everything you need to get kids cooking. The cost of one unit is $9,500 plus tax and shipping.


  • Convection oven and induction cooktop
  • Stainless steel sink with spray nozzle pump and grey water recovery
  • Storage cupboards for all utensils, pots, pans, dishes and lesson plans

In addition to the oven and cooktop, every Charlie Cart comes fully equipped with an oven, rinse station, induction cooktop, and 170+ pieces of cooking equipment. The program is fully integrated — to make the recipes in the lessons, you only need the tools supplied on the cart. Our team has carefully crafted the ideal set of equipment to execute the recipes/lessons, which means that you can spend less time on logistics and more time cooking!


  • A set of 54 lesson plans, aligned to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards
  • Simple, seasonal recipes that teach foundational cooking skills 
  • Cross-disciplinary connections between food, health and the environment

Every Charlie Cart comes with a limited Basic Training Session that allows you to get started right away. Our team will review the nuts and bolts of the cart, curriculum and tools.

We can also come to you! For an additional fee, our team can help you elevate your skills with our Food Educator’s Workshop.  This 4-hour workshop is held on-site at your location, for up to 30 participants.
