Our Food Philosophy

A message from our Founder:

At Menachem Mendel Academy, we’ve had a number of prospective parents asking great questions recently about why we’re building our school on organic, plant-based foods.  I absolutely love this question, but it’s not a short answer, because it requires some background info.  So, I’m going to break this down into five specific questions. The links below explore each of the five topics.

To save you from super boredom, I’m going to skip most of the science references and statistics in this explanation, but we are building a “Support Resources” tab on our website, and all of the research and data will be available there.  Let’s get started.

  1. Is “eating healthy” really important?
  2. What exactly is “eating healthy”?
  3. Why plant-based foods?
  4. Why organic?
  5. Why require the meal plan as a standard mandate of the school?

So, there you have it, the explanation of our Food Philosophy. The bottom-line is this: At MMA, we’re family.  Your children are our children, and we will feed them with the exact same high-quality standards as we feed our own.  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, drop on by, and we’ll quickly whip you up a delicious and nutritious meal that will leave you wishing that YOU were a student at Menachem Mendel Academy!

With blessing and success,

Chaya
