kind orgs: new york coalition for healthy school food
Candle 79 Chefs
My friends Joy and Benay of Candle Cafe and Candle 79 work very closely with NYCHSF, a great organization that is working hard to bring healthy veg food to schools in New York. Their advisory board includes some amazing members, like China Study author T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Dr. Joel Fuhrman, MD, among others.
NYCHSF is already in 17 schools in New York City and in all of the elementary schools in Ithaca, NY (hooray, Ithaca)! In NYC, they have a waiting list of 48 more schools that would like the plant-based entrees and nutrition education NYCHSF offers, but they need more resources to be able to expand.
