California’s First Partner Visits NVUSD
Posted 10/26/22

We had the honor of welcoming the Chef Ann Foundation that hosted California’s First Partner, Jennifer Siebel Newsom State Senator Nancy Skinner Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, school board members Cindy Watter and Robin Jankiewicz, and many others at our NOSH - Napa’s Operative for School Food Health Central Kitchen for a working lunch, prepared by our Central Kitchen.

The event's purpose was to better understand the potential impact of California’s Healthy School Food Pathway Program, which aims to increase scratch cooking in California K-12 school food programs and establish a pathway for pre-apprentices and apprentices in their districts.

We are proud that our Central Kitchen was selected as the location for the event because we stand as an example of a district that is successfully transitioning from processed heat-and-serve food to a self-operated scratch-cook food program.

We invite you to catch a glimpse of the event on our Facebook  or Instagram.
