The Chez Panisse Foundation is supporting an initiative to make good, local food a part of every school: the Edible Schoolyard. The first edible schoolyard was established at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School in Berkeley, and it has proven to be radically successful. This summer, the Foundation is spreading awareness about the program with an Eating for Education dinner on August 27. I was fortunate enough to be involved in this remarkable project.
