So when you do things like this, you’re not only teaching young people how to eat well, you’re showing them how fun it is! Listen to the energy of these young people! Look how they are dressed in their chef attire. This is what education is about! Steve and his Green Bronx Machine is going to turn into a green New York City machine!
