Family Dinner Nights at Philadelphia Schools

Posted on October 6, 2012

In collaboration with the Health Promotions Council, Sunday Suppers is providing family suppers at 9 Philadelphia schools. HPC has been providing nutrition education at each of these sites over the years and has helped each site establish or expand their gardens. SS family dinners are an opportunity for families to experience the SS model and have a healthy 3 course meal highlighting some of the crops they grew. At our first school in mid October families enjoyed carrots and baba ghanoush, a salad of spring mix, cherry tomatoes and sweet peppers, roasted chicken and potatoes and sautéed cabbage and onions with caraway. Dessert was delicious apricot oatmeal bars. The verdict was unanimous—everyone loved it!
