Click below for this great example of GW’s campus-community partnerships.
“Creatively merging our two organizations’ areas of expertise, Aselin Lands of GW ArtReach created art lessons to correspond with three popular DC Central Kitchen nutrition lessons: “MyPlate”, “Where does your food come from?” and “Eat the Rainbow.” For six weeks, 30 students alternated between interactive nutrition education lessons and creative art projects. Each of their nutrition education lessons involved a hands-on cooking demo, including our popular kale salad recipe and a taco representing all five food groups. One student, Dylan, liked the kale salad so much that he later made it with his family at home! However, he did report being just a little disappointed that his mom bought pre-chopped kale instead of a bunch, meaning he couldn’t use the knife skills he had learned in class with us.”
