Why We Love Edible Education

Here’s what schools and educational organizations are saying about Edible Education!

Michelle McLees, Director, Marketing and Communications, American Heart AssociationMichelle McLees, Director, Marketing and Communications, American Heart Association“Nearly 1 in 3 overweight or obese kids under the age of 18 faces the threat of early heart disease because of their weight. The American Heart Association applauds Edible Education for how much it helps children (and adults) develop healthy eating habits that will bring lifelong benefits. Way to go, Ann Butler!”

We loved having your chefs come to school and teach the students — who all really enjoyed your classes. Your friendly and knowledgeable chefs made the classes come to life. You truly have a fantastic offering!”

maryannMaryann Kaminsky, speech therapist, St. Andrews School: “When I screen new students and re-screen former students, I typically ask if they have a favorite and least favorite food. I have been super impressed this year by the number of responses such as broccoli, blue berries, strawberries, and other healthy foods. This is a significant change from in the past when I would hear only responses such as pizza and hamburgers, etc. I thank Ann Butler’s Edible Education program for making the difference.”

Here’s what parents are saying: 

after-schoolDebbie Lewis, Richmond, VA: “I have been recommending the camp to friends! I think it is a wonderful, practical and well put together camp for budding chefs and food enthusiasts. I especially appreciate that the menu is filled with healthy foods (unlike other programs I have found that make simple and junky foods).”

Jennifer Nixon, Midlothian, VA: “My daughter had a wonderful time. She is already planning on next summer’s camp.”

Nathan Saunders, Richmond, VA: “My child had a fantastic time! He learned a ton and is now eager to cook at home. In fact, after my husband told his co-workers about camp, they are now eager to try adult classes. It all sounds like so much fun!

Jennifer Hazelgrove, Richmond, VA: “My daughter loved Camp C.H.E.F. and wants to do more cooking classes!”
