Recently, First Lady Michelle Obama, along with school children from DC-area schools Bancroft Elementary and Harriet Tubman Elementary, planted the kitchen garden. Now in its third year, this planting season the garden included spinach, peas, lettuce, broccoli, blueberries, raspberries and other vegetables and herbs.

Besides planting, the First Lady and White House chef Sam Kass discussed the Let’s Move! initiative, and the importance of eating healthy, as well as the collaboration between the Chefs Move to Schools Program and local schools.
