Come Join the Chicago Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Pediatric Nutrition Expert, Lara Field, at Gourmet Gorilla as we take a deeper look at childhood nutrition and the importance of providing healthier eating options in schools for children’s sustainable futures. Gourmet Gorilla is a Chicago based company who is transforming the food service model by delivering healthy, locally sourced, made from scratch meals, and delivering them daily to schools and other childcare facilities.
The night will be full of mingling with dietitians, learning how ingredients are setting the standards of the food service business model as well as child nutrition challenges and the positive impact of school lunch on children’s diets. Food will be provided based on items pulled straight from Gourmet Gorilla’s school menus, giving guests a taste of what kids are eating! We are excited to educate you all on nutrition in a critical time of a child’s life and demonstrate how this company is exceeding the USDA Final Rules of the Healthy and Hunger-Free Kids Act.
