Resource Directory: Food Education
CwK grew out of the efforts of a local student nutrition advisory council to improve school food. CwK work is based on food acceptance research conducted by Antonia Demas, Ph.D., and inspired by the work of Cookshop and The Hartford Food System. CwK began as a volunteer effort in two public elementary schools in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Today, over 5,000 pre-kindergarten through seventh grade students in thirteen schools participate in the program.
