Welcome to Chefs Move To Schools

Chefs Are Moving to Schools

First Lady Michelle Obama is calling on chefs to join the fight against childhood obesity by adopting a school and working with teachers, parents, school nutrition professionals and administrators to help educate children about food and to show them that healthy eating can be fun.

Why Partner?

Chefs and schools have a unique opportunity to work together to teach kids about food in a fun, appealing way. The Chefs Move to Schools program seeks to utilize the creativity and culinary expertise of chefs to help schools
ensure that America’s youngest generation grows up healthy.

How to Partner

Chefs Move to Schools focuses on the interests and expertise of each chef volunteer and the needs of each school. There are many ways the partnership can work to positively impact the eating habits of children. To make the process easier for you and to get the best match for both chefs and schools, Chefs Move to Schools is built around three tracks—the classroom, the cafeteria, and culinary training/demos.
