In 2011, Chef Prep launched Quality for Kids (Q4K), which "aims to provide a competitive learning advantage to educators and students by teaching the methods, science and culture of quality." Chef Prep explains the development of Q4K, "It started with working with science and food in the schools which turned into cooking classes, because a lot of science happens in the kitchen." Chef Prep’s cooking classes are always geared towards nutrition, showing the value of cooking for oneself and eating fresh, local ingredients. Serving as the executive director of the non-profit, he also oversees "Veggie Wars" — an innovative middle school curriculum that educates students on making healthy eating choices. "We challenge 7th graders to solve a societal problem, which is people don't eat enough fruits and vegetables. We give them the task to create vegetable dishes that people like and teach them experiments to optimize the flavor," says Prep. Q4K made national news when it became part of three Michigan school curriculums and was honored at the US Innovative Educators forum, sponsored by Microsoft for its mission "to make it popular for kids to eat healthy."
