The Chefs Move to Schools program, founded in May 2010, is an integral part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative and its goal of solving the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation. This website creates a platform for chefs and schools to create partnerships in their communities with the mission of collaboratively educating kids about food and healthy eating.

Chefs, we need your help to teach children that eating healthy foods can be fun and delicious. Volunteering allows you to teach, inspire and motivate children to change their eating habits and play a role in beginning to turn the tide on the obesity epidemic.

Chef Sign-Up

Schools that sign up to partner with chefs receive menu ideas, culinary training and help teaching students about the importance of healthy meals. Partnering with chefs also helps schools build excitement about their school meals programs with students and parents.
