This year, our New York City Operations Director Jonathan Saturay and team of five amazing instructors crisscrossed the city to turn more than 3,600 kids at 44 schools into food detectives! In addition to teaching 157 workshops in all five boroughs of NYC, we hosted our first SEA > NYC instructor exchange, with Seattle-based instructor Nora Dummer teaching Pure Food Kids classes on the East Coast for a week.
The Pure Food Kids NYC team also attended the Change Food Fest and Just Food Conference; presented our Healthy Teacher’s Workshop for Science Teacher’s of Staten Island, at the City Growers Conference, and the Staten Island Garden Summit; and celebrated our first Pure Food Party with the 5th grade classes of PS 262.
Hats off to our awesome NYC-based staff! Check out some photo highlights from the year:
