Grub Street & CBS: Latvian Students Sample EatiquetteMay 02 2012 Posted in: Vetri, Vetri Foundation, Eatiquette , Osteria, Alla Spina, Amis, Press 0 comments
Excerpt from philadelphia.cbslocal.com story by Paul Kurtz:
"Students at a North Philadelphia charter school were breaking bread today with 12 students from Latvia.
The National Constitution Center arranged this “meet, greet, and eat” at the People for People Charter School through a collaboration with acclaimed chef Marc Vetri, whose foundation feeds the students five days a week.
André Williams, the school’s director of operations, says Vetri’s “Eatiquette” initiative tosses aside the school assembly line lunch in favor of a family style setting."
Excerpt from philadelphia.grubstreet.com story:
"Marc Vetri’s Eatiquette, a program the chef developed that revolutionizes school lunches, is possibly one of the very few good things happening in Philly schools right now. And sadly, as the School District of Philadelphia continues its downhill skid toward certain doom, only two area schools, both of which are charter schools, have adopted the Vetri approach to cafeteria operations."
