Welcome back to school!

4 Sep

6085132797_166fcfe782A big welcome back goes out to all of our students, teachers, faculty and administrators!

What a summer it’s been!

We had a very successful Food + Garden Summer Camp, and also a great summer for serving lunches to other camps in our area.

We have taken on 2 new schools, that we are really excited about, and many more new schools have sign up for our after-school cooking program.

We wish you all a successful, healthy, exploratory, fun, challenging, meaningful, and exciting school year ahead!

grilling tip + gratitude

5062066751_bbfb3a8ce4Calling all grilling enthusiasts!

Leave a lasting mark on your summer grilling ingredients by using the “cross hatch” method.

Not only does the cross hatch make your food look pretty, it allows it to cook more evenly ensuring that your ingredients both look and taste delicious.

Check out our last table top of the school year that our students get to read during lunch. Hopefully this cooking method will inspire our students during their fun summer cook outs!

Happy end (or almost end) of the school year for all! It’s been an amazing year filled with lots of healthy food, nutrition education, cooking classes and happy and healthy children.

Thanks to everyone that has been apart of making our program a success, and to all of our students, parents and faculty for being so supportive, informative and enthusiastic.

Looking forward to another spectacular school year ahead, and a rich, fun and eye opening summer camp program to come!

With gratitude,

The Butter Beans Team
