The aim of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation is to introduce pleasurable food education into as many Australian primary schools as possible.
The Program emphasises the flavours as well as the health benefits of fresh, seasonal food.
Dishes cooked reflect the vegetables, herbs and fruits grown, season-by-season, by the children in their organic gardens.
The Kitchen Specialist instructors emphasise balance and moderation, and endorse the concept of preparing fruit-based desserts ‘sometimes’ only.
The Program is designed to be fully integrated into the primary school curriculum as it offers infinite possibilities to reinforce literacy, numeracy, science, cultural studies and all aspects of environmental sustainability.
In addition, the Program delivers observable social benefits to all students, including those with special needs.
