Schools and chefs all across the nation are coming together to take part in Michelle Obama's Chefs Move to Schools Program, an important component of the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative.
"The program is about chefs that adopt a school," said Jarrett Rogers, Fort Campbell schools food service director. "They help the health and wellbeing of children by working with student organizations to brainstorm alternative menus and create healthy dishes that are fun and delicious."
On Jan. 28, Fort Campbell schools officially joined the ranks, kicking off their Chefs Move to Schools program by partnering with the Clifton T. Stanfill American Culinary Federation Chapter, located in Clarksville, Tenn. "Our whole commitment here is all about childhood nutrition," said Rogers. "Trying to get kids interested, and trying to get them educated in what we are offering."
