The Edible Schoolyard Project with Alice Waters

Alice Waters has a vision for school lunch in America, that every child at school would receive a free, organic, prepared from scratch meal at breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. That lunch would be an academic subject for every student, taught through a hands-on curriculum in school gardens and teaching kitchens. Anaviv has partnered with Alice Waters to help make this vision a reality for every school child in California. The “Lunch is an Academic Subject” event is a great way to get your company involved in this unbelievable project. The event is a combination of a beautiful lunch for up to 500, an inspiring talk from Alice Waters and a path way for your employees and company to be part of the vision.
