Edible Education

Public school is our last truly democratic institution. Every child goes to school, and it's the best way to reach and impact our nation's children. Alice Waters, acclaimed restaurateur and social activist, believes that public schools should be the vehicle for "Edible Education" - a curriculum to teach children the connections between our everyday choices about food, our health and the health of our communities, and our planet.
