DC Chefs Move to Schools

The “Chefs Move to Schools” program, run through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will pair chefs with interested schools in their communities so together they can create healthy meals that meet the schools’ dietary guidelines and budgets, while teaching young people about nutrition and making balanced and healthy choices. With more than 31 million children participating in the National School Lunch Program and more than 11 million participating in the National School Breakfast Program, good nutrition at school is more important than ever.

Jaime Montes De Oca, Jr., the Chef de Cuisine of Zentan is lending his support to adopt a school in the District along with Jamie Leeds, one of Washington’s most highly recognized owner/chefs of Hank’s Oyster Bar and CommonWealth Gastropub .
