In response to Gapers Block’s July 16th post about “Lunch Line”…

While Organic School Project is no longer running the kitchen at Alcott Elementary School, as was the case during the filming of “Lunch Line,” we are still actively engaged with Alcott. OSP staff is currently leading a weekly gardening class for approximately thirty 1-8th graders at Alcott’s summer camp program.

OSP has also begun work on phase two of our project. We are in the process of contacting school districts and developing an institutional cookbook. This comprehensive guide, organized by season will provide instruction on how to purchase, process, store and prepare seasonal, sustainable foods for schools and other large institutions.

Working hands on in the kitchen is an extremely important and rewarding step in the process, and OSP has begun to expand its focus to tackling these next steps, which will lead to the execution of our GROW TEACH FEED model in a number of schools.
