Veggiecation Announces Partnerships with New Schools for 2010 School Year in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
RIDGEWOOD, NJ (October 4, 2010) – The Veggiecation Program today announced that for the 2010 school year, its program is being implemented in select elementary schools in the states of New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Veggiecation links lessons in the classroom to experiences in elementary school lunchrooms, introducing young students to the delicious world of vegetables and teaching them the importance of health and nutrition. As the only curriculum based school lunch program of its kind, Veggiecation provides teachers with adaptable lessons and supporting materials that can be seamlessly integrated into existing lesson plans.
Lisa Suriano, founder and creator of the Veggiecation Program, will conduct a cooking demonstration for kids from ages 6 to 10 during Move About Myrtle events, and on the menu is Teriyaki Snap Peas and Carrots. As practiced in Veggiecation programs implemented in elementary schools throughout New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts, kids will be invited to help peel carrots, clean snap peas, sample Veggiecation's culinary creation, experience snap peas in their raw form and cast a vote on how they liked the recipe in the Veggiecation Ballot Boxes.
