It seems there’s only wonderful news when it comes to KitchenAid. Today we discovered that 250 government primary schools around Australia will receive a new Empire Red Artisan KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
So watch out reigning Junior Masterchefs, once all our children get their hands on a KitchenAid, you may have hundreds more contenders for the title!
It’s all part of a three year partnership agreement between KitchenAid and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program and already Bondi Public School in Sydney and Collingwood College in Melbourne have received their KitchenAid Stand Mixer as well as a training session with a KitchenAid trainer. The planned rollout will help equip the more than 30,000 students already involved in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation’s Food Education Revolution.
I love it when we pull out our stand mixer at home (sadly not a KitchenAid); my kids come racing into the kitchen, climb onto the stools and all ask to take turns switching on, scraping the bowl, switching off and of course, licking the beaters. So you can imagine, the children in the schools that are receiving their Red KitchenAid Stand Mixers are just the same. “The response from the schools so far has been magical,” said Alana Fletcher, Communications and Sponsorship Manager for KitchenAid’s Australia and New Zealand distributor, Peter McInnes Pty Ltd.
“Eyes just light up when we present the KitchenAid, and it’s so inspiring to see 8 – 12 year old children use it with their Kitchen Specialist to create such healthy recipes. The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program is truly helping to change a generation, and KitchenAid is proud to be a part of it as a Kitchen Garden Program Partner.”
In 2012, the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program will be in over 250 government-funded primary schools spanning every state and territory in Australia – 60% in regional areas and the rest in metropolitan areas. This will see the Program reach children in a range of socio-economic areas in the 8 – 12 year age group.
