Success Story

Farm to Table School Initiative

Steve Landon, a Skaneatales chef and member of the American Culinary Federation, is spearheading an effort to teach young Central New Yorkers about healthy eating habits and food. Along with other chef volunteers from the ACF Syracuse NY Chapter, Landon works with classes at Waterman Elementary School and with the afterschool program at Southwest Community Center. The fun begins with planting a garden and then using those ingredients to make healthy recipes. The students share their experience tasting healthy foods to their friends and family, passing on the message that healthy can be tasty.
