About Pilot Light
Inspired by Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move, Chefs Move to Schools' campaign, Pilot Light enlists the city's top chefs and Chicago Public Schools teachers to incorporate culinary education and nutrition into existing core curricula. Pilot Light's incubator program at the Disney II Magnet School includes chefs and teachers collaborating to develop lesson plans and facilitate thoughtful discussion about food as it relates to literacy, math, social studies and science. Sample lessons include 'Access to Food as a Civil Right' (4th grade social studies), and 'Noodles to Neighborhoods' - teaching cultural diversity through pasta (3rd grade social studies). Classroom discussions culminate in a healthy, chef-produced lunch. Board members include chefs Paul Kahan, Matthias Merges, Jason Hammel, Ryan Poli and Justin Large, as well as Principal Bogdana Chkoumbova, and education consultants Brooke Stafford-Brizard and Shari Berland.
