In looking at this photo it stretches my imagination to believe that Mayor Bloomberg made all of his money in the field of technology. But don't worry we've now got foodie Rachael Ray on the job. With what they're learning here these kids will be well trained for future careers at McDonald's and Home Depot.
There are better ways to teach about local food, plant science, technology and the environment. Contrary to popular belief, the word garden is not synonymous with dirt.
Mayor Bloomberg and Rachael Ray today announced a series of initiatives to help our City’s youth eat healthier and understand where their food comes from. The new programs, supported by Rachael Ray and her Yum-o! organization, will help schools build a garden or connect them to an existing garden and provide cooking and nutrition instruction to young New Yorkers.
