Farm to Cafeteria: A Red Hook Lunch
The above video entitled "Farm to Cafeteria: A Red Hook Lunch," made by Kimberly Vargas, a former Added Value Youth Participant, has made it to the finalist stage of a video contest called "Real Food is Youtube."
Head over to the contest page and vote for Kimberly's video so that she can win! The
winner will receive $1,000 for their cafeteria food project, and one representative from the winning video entry and a select chaperone win an all expense paid trip (registration, travel, and lodging) to the 4th National Farm to Cafeteria Conference in Portland, Oregon March 19-21st, 2009.
This video not only highlights the great importance of the work done by Added Value and the Red Hook Community Farm, but also provides some insight into possibilities for school cafeteria food to be healthy, local, and tasty!
