Pilot Light is Feeding Young Minds Through Food Education

Pilot Light eLearning and classroom lessons are developed by teachers for teachers to be integrated into existing curricula and provide a holistic scope of food education for all students.
Lessons are often developed in collaboration with chefs and the Chicago community (and beyond) and are intentionally aligned to Common Core Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and Pilot Light’s own Food Education Standards.
