How can schools help kids make healthy food choices? In this new video from the Nourish Video Encyclopedia, Edible Schoolyard founder Alice Waters talks about the value of garden and kitchen experiences in transforming students’ relationship to food.

Next week we’ll be announcing an innovative new Nourish school curriculum to help teachers bring food education into the classroom. Stay tuned.

And be sure to watch the award-winning PBS special Nourish: Food + Community, which features Cameron Diaz, Michael Pollan, and others, airing on select stations nationwide. Find a PBS broadcast in your area.


Alice Waters is a chef, cookbook author, and founder of the Chez Panisse Foundation, which supports educational programs that use food to nurture, educate, and empower youth. She created the Edible Schoolyard at Berkeley’s Martin Luther King, Jr., Middle School, comprised of a one-acre garden, an adjacent kitchen-classroom, and an “eco-gastronomic” curriculum.
