Join us as we kick off a summer of Charlie Cart programs! Find out more about this amazing mobile kitchen, learn about Lowcountry Food Bank’s mission, and enjoy some cooking demos.
What’s a Charlie Cart? Good question! The Charlie Cart is a mobile kitchen classroom that delivers hands-on nutrition education. Lowcountry Food Bank and the Charlie Cart provide the tools and knowledge children need to make healthy choices for life. Cooking is an ideal medium for learning: it is hands-on, engaging and rewarding. Hands-on learning promotes success across disciplines and develops collaboration, critical thinking skills, and subject mastery.
These programs are made possible through a partnership with the Lowcountry Food Bank through its Nutrition Initiatives. The Lowcountry Food Bank is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that distributes donated food to a network of nearly 300 member agencies throughout 10 coastal counties in South Carolina, including soup kitchens, homeless shelters and emergency food pantries.
