Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation - Kitchen Garden at Home

 

Coles is partnering with Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden to bring the magic of learning and experimenting in the kitchen straight into the homes of children around Australia.  

Last week, Coles supported the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen foundation’s launch of its Kitchen Garden at Home program, a series of themed garden activities,  recipes and curriculum links created by the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation (SAKGF). 

Presented in a remote learning format, the program is structured around the Kitchen Garden Program mantra of growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing. The bespoke content is intended to keep students and schools engaged in the program and build their interest in fresh, seasonal and wholesome foods. It will see eight new collections released weekly running until June, having begun in April.

Kitchen Garden Program at Home will be available to more than 2000 registered schools and early learning centres via the SAKGF shared table, a large online community where all members have a profile. 

A selection of the cooking videos will be made available to the public via the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation website, YouTube channels as well as being accessible on the Coles YouTube channel. Subscribe to stay up to date!

How is Coles supporting the Kitchen Garden Program at Home?

Together with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation, Coles is helping to develop the recipes and videos to be released weekly. These will support teachers and educators to enhance their kitchen garden class, as well as inspire Aussie families to grow, harvest, prepare and share, fresh seasonal delicious food in their homes!

Coles has engaged ambassadors, Michael Weldon and Courtney Roulston for the delivery of these videos. The chefs do an exceptional job of taking kids on a step by step journey through recipes, really getting the children engaged and excited about fresh food.

In early May, Stephanie Alexander and other chefs featured on the Coles What’s for Dinner Segment during the Channel 7 evening news, promoting the program and encouraging families to get children involved in the cooking process as home.
