Chef Jamie McFadden Answers the First Lady's Call!

On September 14th, Chef Jamie McFadden of Cuisiniers will start his first class at Morning Star School in College Park, but don’t worry, Jamie isn’t hanging up his chef’s hat.

Instead, Chef Jamie McFadden is joining 1,600 chefs across the nation in Michelle Obama’s “Chefs Move to School” program.  The program calls for each of the chefs to adopt a school in their community and volunteer their time to help generate excitement about nutritious foods through school gardens, cooking demonstrations, taste tests, and more.  Jamie has selected to adopt Morning Star Catholic School in College Park, a school that caters specifically to students with special needs.

Chefs Move to School provides resources to help the chefs get started, but encourages all the chefs to find new opportunities and possibilities to engage students, teachers, food service staff, and parents as they support their adopted school.  The program has also set up a website (LetsMove.gov) and a Facebook fanpage to follow the progress of each chef on their own unique profile!
