Kids Cook Healthy with Crockpots at North Providence School!

A school survey indicated that many students at Marieville Elementary must often prepare their own meals at home. A wonderful crockpot program was born out of the desire to teach them how to prepare a healthy meal and learn about knife and food safety.  

As part of the North Providence Marieville Health Equity Zone (www.nphez.org), crockpots were purchased for students and each week a new recipe is cooked in the crockpots during the day. The students taste-test the meal, receive the ingredients necessary to cook the meal at home in their free crockpot, and prep any necessary foods during class.

Survey results confirm that students are consuming more fresh, hot and healthy meals at home because of this innovative program!
