A group of about twenty local Fuel Up to Play 60 middle school students enjoyed an educational lunchtime session with celebrity Chef Victor Albisu and the DC Central Kitchen’s “Farm Truck” on today as part of the Future of Food event in Washington, D.C.
This traveling, edible exhibit provided a hands-on experience to teach the kids where their food comes from and how it fits into a healthy diet. Using ingredients found in the students’ on-site lunch, Chef Albisu demonstrated that making healthy, nutrient-rich food choices doesn’t have to be a daunting task.
“I learned that if we can live a healthy lifestyle, we don’t have to be overweight when we grow up,” said 7th grader Cecelia Lupton. “We just have to make the right food choices like homemade foods so what we learn today we can incorporate tomorrow.”
Putting their farm truck lesson into action, Chef Albisu encouraged the students to bring the various ingredients they picked inside, where they built their own salads and wraps.
“Learning about the different foods was my favorite part,” said 7th grader Megan Barbee. “I learned that different foods can be used with others and not to be afraid to try something new.”
