GRAVESEND - A new outdoor kitchen classroom was unveiled today at P.S. 216 in Gravesend as part of an effort to promote healthy eating habits.
The kitchen features commercial refrigerators and freezers, as well as work stations where students can learn how to cook healthy meals from vegetables that are grown in the students’ very own organic farm.
The outdoor kitchen also has a greenroom where students will take garden classes this winter.
The greenroom, outdoor kitchen and organic garden were all made possible through a partnership with Edible Schoolyard NYC and $2 million in funds from City Councilman Domenic Recchia and Borough President Marty Markowitz.
