Conscious Kitchen’s self sustaining program serves approximately 600 students K through 8 at a public school and a public charter school comprising the Sausalito Marin City School District, in Marin County, California. Once implemented, schools own and operate their Conscious Kitchen programs. Conscious Kitchen’s team is partnering with additional schools and districts throughout the Bay Area, with a goal towards statewide adoption of this model. Please see more about our pilot at the West Contra Costa Unified School District here.
