Join Chef Todd Gray’s Web Chat about the “Chefs Move to Schools” initiative.

Did you know that one in three children in America are overweight or obese? The statistics are startling and there is only one way to tackle the problem — together. A comprehensive, collaborative, and community-oriented initiative started by First Lady Michelle Obama, the Let’s Move! campaign, has an ambitious national goal of solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation so that children born today will reach adulthood at a healthy weight.  Let’s Move! will help to impact the health of children by providing schools, families and communities simple tools to help kids be more active, eat better, and get healthy.

“We are going to need everyone’s time and talent to solve the childhood obesity epidemic and our Nation’s chefs have tremendous power as leaders on this issue because of their deep knowledge of food and nutrition and their standing in the community. I want to thank them for joining the Let’s Move! Campaign” – First Lady Michelle Obama

Chefs across the country are answering Mrs. Obama’s call to get involved with their local schools as part of the Chefs Move to Schools initiative, run through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, including Equinox Restaurant’s Executive Chef Todd Gray.

On Monday, September 13th at 2 p.m, Equinox Restaurant’s Executive Chef Todd Gray will participate in a live web chat in conjunction with WHYY’s nationally broadcast “Chef’s Table,” to discuss his work with Michelle Obama’s “Chefs Move to Schools” initiative and his recent keynote speech at Michelle Obama’s White House breakfast introducing the Chef’s Move to Schools program. In addition, Chef Gray will discuss Adopting a School–his work here in the District of Columbia with the Murch school.

Chef Gray has been very active in the community and is an instrumental force in driving this movement. Not only is Todd Gray a Chef — he’s a parent! Interested in hearing about the Let’s Move! campaign? Join the conversation!
