When Pilot Light partners chefs with teachers to teach through food, we transform the learning environment of the classroom into one that promotes healthy lifelong decision-making for students. In this video, our Executive Director Alexandra DeSorbo-Quinn, Chef and Co-Founder Paul Kahan (The Publican, Blackbird, Avec, Big Star, PQM), and 3rd Grade Disney II Magnet teacher Andy Kramer discuss the power of bringing together the minds of chefs and teachers to embed food education into the classroom. As Kahan describes it, this approach “opens up a child’s mind to the possibilities that food has to offer.”
