Lisa Suriano, founder and CEO of Veggiecation, filmed with Shelley Goldberg of New York 1 this morning, March 20th.  Shelley has been on air for 18 years providing parents with tips on where to go and what to do with their children.  Lisa spoke of the free Whole Foods Market cooking classes that Veggiecation conducts in select Whole Foods in NYC.  To learn more about these cooking class dates, please click here.
