“My daughter Maura is in the first grade at Jahn World Language School in Chicago. She loved your program this year. She was tickled to see Joshua at Whole Foods on a weekend visit. The entire year she looked forward to Purple Asparagus visits. Maura is a super healthy eater with a curiosity to try anything new. We wanted to share this picture which capped the year off and made her feel a little better about the program ending.” Parent from the 2012-2013 school year.  #Food #Education
