On October 23, 2013, David Freudberg, host and producer of NPR radio program Humankind, visited and recorded our "Culinary Boot Camp": cooking classes for students at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Learn more about our program and the value in medical students learning how to cook healthful food here.
As we enter this holiday season and reflect with our friends and families, we are grateful to be part of a movement that recognizes the role that healthful, sustainable and affordable food has in creating healthy communities. However, locally-grown food still remains inaccessible for many and the disparity is growing.
Local Matters is deeply committed to educating children about what healthy food is, how to grow it and how to cook it and we work every day to do this through our Food Matters program. In particular we are passionate supporters of early childhood education.
