The Charlie Cart Project is an integrated educational program
that connects food and cooking with lessons in
Math, English Language Arts, Science and Social Studies.
We combine a rigorous curriculum with a mobile kitchen classroom
to deliver hands-on nutrition education in any learning environment.
Building healthy lives through hands on food education
The Charlie Cart Project brings together equipment, lessons, and partnerships to provide high quality food and nutrition programs in any educational setting.
Research shows that hands-on learning promotes success in science, math, and social studies, and develops collaboration and critical thinking skills. Cooking projects further influence knowledge, attitudes and behaviors around food, fostering lifelong healthy eating habits.
The Charlie Cart Project enriches programs where school gardens or limited cooking are in place, and brings the benefit of hands-on learning to schools that are just getting started with food education.
