Genoa restaurant Executive Chef David Anderson is heading to the White House to help Michele Obama launch her “Chefs Move Schools” program.
From the press release, “Having been involved with Share Our Strengths and Taste of the Nation since moving to Portland 9 years ago, Mr. Anderson was nominated to help Michele Obama launch her “Chefs Move Schools” Program.
David will be attending the program launch next Friday 6/4 at The White House then return home to partner with local schools in developing nutritionally sound lunch programs.
When asked what motivated him to get involved with child nutrition and obesity issues, David stated,
‘I was lucky to grow up in Ketchikan, Alaska where an active lifestyle was the norm from an early age. My goal is to help our schools not only create healthy lunch programs, but to highlight physical activity as part of a daily nutritional regimen.'”
