Mondelez International Foundation is committed to helping ASAS instill life-long healthy habits. One of the best ways is to instill these habits begins with a sense of culinary adventurousness. Enter kale…
Sautéed with olive oil and a dash of lemon juice to brighten things up, kale has been the dark horse on the ASAS culinary scene. Trepidation is quickly replaced with delight as students discover the pleasures of fresh produce expertly prepared. For many All-Stars, this is their first experience tasting truly fresh produce and sampling new dishes. And it’s the students themselves that are calling the shots in the kitchen. In a farm to table approach, they’re growing tomatoes, zucchini, corn, eggplants, and herbs and utilizing their home-grown produce as they master healthy cooking techniques and nutrition lessons as part of a nationwide initiative to instill life-long healthy fitness and eating habits.

“I like cooking class because we make all different sorts of food—we make vegan foods, we make healthy foods, and learn how to make things from scratch instead of out of a box. It helps me find different ways to try new foods, and I can cook them at home,” shared Zackery from ASAS Puget Sound.
