Calling all Community-Minded Chefs!

Fit4Kids is searching for kid-loving, community-minded chefs who have just 1 hour to help make food in Richmond Public Schools (RPS) even more delicious and nutritious. Our Eat Fresh RPS initiative has been working wonders to dramatically increase the amount of fruits and vegetables available to over 10,000 students each day.  And now we need chefs’ passion and expertise to make this produce as tasty as possible!
