Veggiecation and Curious Chef Recipe Contest!

In honor of Food Day 2015, we have partnered with Curious Chef for a unique Food Day event that will go well beyond October 24th! Together, we will host a recipe contest, open to anyone interested in bringing culinary-nutrition education to their community!

Our mission has always been to teach children about the importance of eating their vegetables. We very quickly realized that one of the best ways to get the to do that is by getting them in to the kitchen and cooking. Our whole program is based off the idea that if you engage children with food and familiarize them with healthy eating concepts, you can shift their attitudes and create lifelong healthy habits. And that’s why we are so excited to partner with Curious Chef, a line of cooking equipment that’s made to inspire children to cook!

Even better, we’re joining forces with them to bring you the first ever Veggiecation and Curious Chef Recipe Contest!

To Enter

- RSVP to our event page (
- Create an original recipe, take a picture, and tag @Veggiecation on Instagram or Facebook.
- Email with the full recipe details! Make sure to include ingredient measurements!

Gardens to Tables Food Day 2015

On October 9, 2015, the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Saint Louis University, with partnerships from the City of St. Louis Department of Health and Les Dames d'Escoffier, will celebrate the 5th annual Gardens to Tables Food Day event. This event is to promote sustainable, healthy, and just agricultural practices.  We will be hosting the event in our garden, just a block and a half away from our office in the Allied Health Building at the corner of Compton and Rutger.  Parking is free in the Hickory East Garage!

The event will kick off with a speech from our awesome keynote speaker, Rusty Lee of Lee Farms (biography below).  He will begin speaking at 11 am on the bleachers at the SLU track across the street from the garden.  Then, we will all cross the street to the garden where the stations and food will be presented.  For the stations, we will have a variety of experts such as agencies that work with these topics to teach of their individual disciplines. 

Along with having stations teaching ways to get involved, we will also be serving an artisanal lunch (menu below) orchestrated by professional chefs and prepared by students for the mere price of $5. for students (with a student ID) or $10 for non-students.  You can pay at the door, or beat the lines and pay online!  We hope to see you there!

About Rusty Lee and Lee Farms

Lee Farms is owned and operated by Rusty and Teresa Lee, along with their children, William and Dora- lynn. The farm is south of the small town of Truxton, Mo. (population 91), in northern Warren County. If you drive west on Interstate 70 you have probably seen the Trux- ton exit (#188) off the interstate.  There is a Flying J truck stop at that exit, but the town of Truxton is several miles north of I-70.

They purchased part of the family farm of Teresa's maternal grandparents in 1999. Rusty and Teresa both grew up in families that farmed, so they both wanted to have their own farm. Teresa's parents still farm nearby north of Warrenton, while Rusty's family raised crops and livestock in southwest Georgia.

Rusty was at University of Georgia Bulldog before coming to the University of Missouri in Columbia to pursue his master's degree, where he met Teresa, who was also a student at Mizzou.

Rusty works full-time on the farm keeping everything moving in the same direction. Teresa utilizes her agribusiness management degree both on the farm and also working for an association management company in Chesterfield. Teresa handles much of the book-keeping and electronic communications at Lee Farms.

William is a hard working 12 year old who just finished sixth grade, his first year of middle school. They continue to be proud of William's work ethic and the fact that he is very well-mannered (something that seems to be rare among "tweens" these days)! While his friends are swimming at the pool or playing video games during summer break, William is working on the farm. He will spend his summer planting and picking vegetables as well as tending to livestock.  But, his favorite job is to help out on delivery days. So, if you happen to be around your pick-up site at delivery time, you'll more than likely see William helping deliver boxes of produce.

Doralynn, age 8, just finished second grade. She is also helping out on the farm over the summer and also helps on deliveries. She is often slow to warm up to people she has just met, but once she is more comfortable, she will tell you every detail of her life! Doralynn is a very bright girl and keeps everyone on their toes! The last day of school for the kids was May 30th, so they are just starting to figure out their responsibilities on the farm for the summer. Doralynn spends a lot of time learning the ropes from William.

We hope you will enjoy hearing a little more about their family and their farm as the season progresses. If you have not already liked them on Facebook, be sure and check out their facebook page
