Educating DC students about food and health.
Beginning in 2011, José Andrés, an innovative advocate of food education and Special Adviser on food issues to GW's President Steven Knapp, and Diane Robinson Knapp, the chair of George Washington University’s Urban Food Task Force, have worked with the School Without Walls faculty to create a high school curriculum that uses food-related examples in the teaching of traditional academic subjects. Called the Integrated Food Project, the aim is to inform students about food and health while at the same time stimulating their interest in the subjects presented. The School Without Walls is a DC public magnet high school for grades 9-12 located on the George Washington University’s Foggy Bottom Campus since 1971. Learn more about the School Without Walls here.
