West Village Eats: Supporting Education with Taste is a local community festival of cooking and food that will raise funds in support of education and enrichment programs at PS3, the West Village's public elementary school.
PS3 offers an integrated arts curriculum with rigorous standards that fosters creative thinking, scientific curiosity and a love for learning - all while taking individual learning styles into account. PS3 has a full service Cooking Program, as well as a Wellness-in-the Schools program that collaborates with the cafeteria staff to produce healthy menus and eating habits. The school garden produces organic greens, herbs and vegetables for the salad bar. Every Spring, 5th grade students build a restaurant in the school, prepare lunch, and service it to their classmates.
West Village Eats has been such a success that we're bringing it back in 2018! Date TBD. All proceeds go directly to benefit the school.
