Mount Kisco Child Care Center (MKCCC) held its 10th Annual Feed Me Fresh: An Edible Evening on Saturday, September 20th. The evening was again hosted by Eric Hadar at his Ivanna Farms estate in Bedford Corners, NY and raised $203,000. Feed Me Fresh is MKCCC’s garden-to-table, nutritional program designed to increase the level of appreciation for healthy foods and healthy choices for children at an early age. The children at MKCCC eat meals and snacks prepared in our kitchen from scratch from fresh local ingredients. They enjoy eating broccoli, kale, cauliflower and more, as well as cooking and growing their own food! Each classroom has its own garden beds in their playground areas. In 2008, based on the innovative Feed Me Fresh program, Mount Kisco Child Care Center was designated the first slow food school in Westchester by Slow Food USA.
