in 1995, restaurateur and food activist alice waters created the first edible schoolyard in berkeley, ca, pioneering the notion that the best place to teach children the connection between food, health, and the environment is in our schools.

edible schoolyard nyc (esynyc) is a separate affiliate program that has brought alice’s vision to the public school children of new york city. esynyc partners with public schools in disadvantaged areas of the city to build organic gardens and kitchen classrooms. esynyc’s staff teaches the organization’s interdisciplinary curriculum on-site, providing programming for students as well as family and community members, and training for teachers and principals. this curriculum of learning about delicious, healthy foods through seed-to-table engagement with a garden and kitchen, provides a path to a more sustainable food future for the neediest children in the city.

esynyc is transforming both the communities in which we work as well as the greater food system in nyc. as part of momofuku’s 10 year anniversary, a portion of the proceeds from our special offerings will be donated in support of esynyc. these funds will continue to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and environment to make healthier choices and change the way they eat for life. 

Now this is a truly inspiring and AWE-some endeavor to not only introduce healthy eating and sustainability, but to literally give students, faculty, and families the seeds to grow a better, healthier future.

(And do not try to pass that horrible sponge cake version off on me. I was raised better than that!)

Nothing says summer like strawberry shortcake. I can SMELL the way the strawberry juice combines so perfectly with the biscuit…heavenly.
