Sullivan University’s Derek Spendlove Helps Launch Chefs Move to Schools Initiative

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

On Friday, June 4, Sullivan University’s baking and pastry department chair Derek Spendlove helped launch first lady Michelle Obama’s Chefs Move to Schools program at the White House. Chef Spendlove was one of 100 chefs from across the United States who were selected to take part in the exclusive event. Chefs Move to Schools is run through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and pairs chefs with schools in their community with the goal of educating children about food and nutrition. By promoting chefs as the catalysts for creating a new nation of children’s food advocates, the program will shift eating behaviors toward healthier choices.

 The launch event brought together the Chefs Move to Schools pilot group, which will work closely with the American Culinary Federation (for whom Spendlove chairs the Certification Commission), the National Restaurant Association and Share Our Strength over the summer to prepare for their work with schools this fall. The pilot group visited the White House garden, attended a speaking engagement featuring Michelle Obama and participated in a breakfast forum with Share Our Strength.
