Wellness in the Schools

Starting the 2011-2012 school year, PS41 introduced a new healthy school lunch program through Wellness in the Schools (WITS). Through this program the students of PS41 participate in special food and nutrition events during the school year.  

Cafe Day
Our students are visited by Gramercy Tavern’s own Michael Anthony.  Chef Anthony and his staff introduce students to fresh seasonal ingredients and prepare interactive meals during lunch.  In the past, they've demonstrated how to make potato salad and asparagus with buttermilk dressing. 

WITS Cooking Labs
Students participate in WITS Cooking Labs which are seasonal culinary and nutrition education classes.  In the Labs, students prepare the simple, affordable, and healthy recipes that they will then experience at lunch and at home.
