COLCHESTER, Vt. - Champlain Elementary School has a brand new tool to help them learn how to cook and eat healthy.
“The Charlie Cart” is a new mobile cooking station. It comes equipped with small appliances, an induction range, electric griddle, food processor, small convection oven, immersion blender, and a hand mixer. It also carries utensils, small-wares, pots and pans, dinnerware, and basic pantry supplies.
Christine Gall, from the Burlington School Food Project, says this new tool is an incredibly comprehensive resource equipped with everything needed to hold cooking lessons with students.
“We want to increase the number of food based education resources we have available at the school,” Gall says.
The school plans to use the cart alongside their school garden. The hope is to implement the cart into the current school curriculum.
“All of the lessons that come with the cart are tied to common core learning standards, so teachers have a very easy way to connect the content that they are using in class,” Gall says.
The “Charlie Cart” was made possible through funding from City Market, North Country Federal Credit Union, the Vermont Community Garden Network and the Champlain PTO.
