GALWAY– Chef hat…check. Mixing bowls, spoons and knives…check. Galway High School culinary student and senior Nick Valente…check. A group of excited and interested Joseph Henry Elementary students…check. Let the Chef and Child Program begin!

The American Culinary Federation brought the Chef and Child program, (aka, Chefs on the Move), steered by Grant DesPres, to Galway Elementary School recently. The program runs through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is designed to help chefs partner with interested schools in their communities. Chefs and students work together to create healthy meals which meet the school’s dietary guidelines and budgets, while teaching young people about nutrition and making healthy choices.

Nick Valente, a Galway senior who will study Culinary Arts and Food Service Management next year at Johnson and Wales University, assisted with the program. “It was a fun and entertaining experience to pass my knowledge and techniques to the kids and their parents. The Chef and Child program is a great way to teach youngsters to make healthier and more delicious choices. In the future, I hope to see the program grow, and hopefully more people will return for more food fun in the upcoming years.”
