During the 2007 Summer, Michelle Stern, owner of What’s Cooking, participated in an Educator Study Tour to Honduras with Heifer International. This Study Tour provided the participants with an opportunity to learn more about Heifer International, issues associated with the root causes of hunger, poverty and environmental degradation, and how our actions as educators help to alleviate these problems. Also, by visiting Heifer project sites and partners, we saw firsthand how Heifer’s approach to development really works. What’s Cooking will be offering more classes that teach students how food can not just help them live a healthy life, but that it can also be used as a form of service within their local and global communities.
