Lunch with Chef Bill Telepan
He brought his talents downtown on Sunday, April 1, 2012 for the IACP Annual Conference in what proved to be both a delicious meal and a conversation about how and what we feed our children. Since 2008, Telepan has also been the Executive Chef of Wellness in the Schools (WITS), a New York City-based non-profit that inspires healthy eating, environmental awareness, and fitness as a way of life for kids in New York City’s public schools. Telepan works with WITS-in-Residence Cooks in public school kitchens to make school food healthier and more delicious. As the first chef involved with WITS, Telepan has spearheaded its goals by developing nutritious school menus, training cafeteria workers, and teaching culinary and nutrition concepts to students, parents, and teachers. Telepan’s daughter Leah, a student at PS-87, inspired him to join WITS and makes healthy school food a cause that he holds close to his heart.
School food never tasted so good, yet recipes met federal school lunch program nutrition requirements and ingredients fell within budgetary guidelines.
