Programs like these have been shown to positively influence children’s food preferences and behaviors.

PS 3, Manhattan, NYC

Leadership makes all the difference when it comes to the impact our programs can make, and the Food, Grow, Play Committee sets the tone for greatness and a robust wellness culture at PS 3. WITS Chef Yamilet is a star in this school, leading her first WITS Labs to much adoration from students and staff. Students had a blast making and enjoying the Pineapple Rice Medley WITS Lab, from chopping and snapping and stirring to tasting the final delicious creation. The Committee commends WITS Chef Yamilet on creating an atmosphere filled with smiles and energy. We eagerly anticipate all of the culinary adventures this year here. PS 3 is the perfect model for how to make a difference and Wellness in the Schools is proud to work with this community!
