Inspiration in the Classroom

Heidi of 101 Cookbooks has a great writeup on a school in Napa, CA that isn't skimpy when it comes to helping its students develop a strong appreciation for the food they eat. The Oxbox School envelops kids in a world of seasonal delight through culinary arts programs and classroom gardens sowed with vegetables, fruit, and herbs. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the school chef is from Chez Panisse.

Heidi also notes efforts in Philadelphia schools to reduce junk food portion and calorie size. We've previously noted similar anti-junk food efforts in NJ and NY. In a sense a much more humble goal than at Oxbow, but indeed a very different playing field.
