During the 2016/17 school year, The Conscious Kitchen served 460 students K through 8 at a public school and a public charter school comprising the Sausalito Marin City School District, in Marin County, California. In 2015, it became the first organic, non-GMO school district in the country. Through a partnership with Good Earth Natural Foods School Lunch Program, we’re excited to transition 14 additional Marin County Schools to FLOSN for a total of 16 Marin County Conscious Kitchen Schools.

The Story of The Conscious Kitchen – Chapter 1
EXECUTIVE CHEF, THE CONSCIOUS KITCHEN
Willow Creek Academy
Born and raised in the Bay Area, Guillaume has experienced many different cultures and beliefs. He sees the common denominator between people as food and family. His goal with the Conscious Kitchen is to create community for the children centered around food to unite the multi cultures of the school.
After working in the food industry for many years, Guillaume has come to realize that he wants to use his cooking skills to effect change. The Conscious Kitchen is that outlet. He looks forward to feeding the children at Willow Creek Academy fresh, local, organic, seasonal, non-GMO sustainable, healthy, and nourishing foods.
