Expanding students’ palates along with their horizons

On this episode of “Dig In,” hear how the dining team at Seattle Public Schools has found ways to educate kids about diversity through food.

After Director of Culinary Services Aaron Smith came to Seattle Public Schools, he and his team took on the ambitious project of creating a distinct menu for five sections of the district, each of which would reflect that region’s unique cultural attributes. Though plans to roll out those menus took a hit during the pandemic, the dining team has still found plenty of ways to celebrate diversity through food.

On this episode of “Dig In,” Smith chats with reporter Julianne Pepitone and shares what his journey’s been like so far.
