New School for Leadership and the Arts Wins The Bronx Salad Dressing Competition
Bronx Health REACH's Moria Byrne-Zaaloff, teachers Jeanelle Divine and Andrea Arist-Neequaye, and students from the New School for Leadership and the Arts at the tasting event at the awards ceremony.
Wowing judges with their delicious Citrus Summer Salad Dressing, students from the New School for Leadership and the Arts are the winners of The Bronx Salad Dressing competition. On Tuesday, at the June 25th award ceremony, students participated in a Bronx Salad tasting event, observed a cooking demonstration by George Edwards of the Office of Food and Nutrition Services NYC; and heard from guest speaker, Aleyna Rodriguez-Sanes, Director of Bronx Canasta. The students created the salad dressing during their Science and Cooking afterschool program sponsored by the Montefiore Moshulu Community Center and Department of Youth and Community Development.
Schools that participated in the competition received seeds to grow the salad ingredients, a copy of The Bronx Salad Toolkit for Schools with growing instructions and hands-on training from Bronx Health REACH and GrowtoLearnNYC teams. This is the second year we have held the Bronx Salad competition. Last year, schools submitted photos for The Bronx Salad Toolkit for Schools Photo Competition. The winning photo, (submitted by PS 333-The Longwood Academy of Discovery) now graces the cover of the toolkit.
