Pilot Light fills the gap. We support and guide our teachers in weaving food and nutrition education into everyday subjects like English, math, social studies and science.
The program fosters collaborations between chefs and teachers through professional development with the goals of integrating food education into the school curriculum and equipping teachers to harness food resources within their schools and communities to enhance classroom learning.
The Pilot Light Instructional Model is designed to inspire students to make healthier food choices. Chefs and educators work together to develop their own unique lessons that align to academic standards and our own Food Education Standards. The model engages students and guides them to make connections between the classroom, the home, and the community through the lens of food.
