Whole Cities Foundation Funds Mobile Teaching Kitchen

The City’s newly adopted Climate Action Plan focuses on the action area of “food,” aiming for nutritious food that is locally grown or non-carbon-intensive, and is readily available across all neighborhoods, leading to improved health and greater resiliency for area families.  But we are making progress in this area.  An example?  The Whole Cities Foundation (sponsored by Whole Foods) has given the Keney Park Sustainability Project a grant for a mobile teaching kitchen.  The KPSP has purchased and rehabilitated a former school bus, and intends to start its first mobile programming later this fall.   KPSP will offer health foods education and cooking demonstrations, with the ultimate goal of reducing rates of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.  Read more and watch a video, from the Hartford Courant!
