Developed in collaboration with New Milford pediatrician Dr. Diane D'Isidori and local chef Anne Gallagher, it is a community-based nutrition and health education program for children in grades 7 through 10.
As many as 12 New Milford students are accepted into the program each year through a competitive application process.
Participants explore health and nutrition-related topics through hands-on culinary skills and cooking instruction; field trips to state farms and fisheries; and community meals for which students demonstrate newly acquired culinary skills and speak about the importance of good nutrition and healthy living.
