Would rather be a big deal Hollywood A-Lister or hang out in New York’s first edible schoolyard? If you’re Jake Gyllenhaal you get to do both!

Last week, the actor spent some quality time at Brooklyn’s P.S. 216 to check out the brand new Edible Schoolyard Program.

The goal of the program is to create and sustain an organic garden and landscape that is wholly integrated into the school’s curriculum, culture, and food program. In short, it offers students a chance to learn about healthy living and sustainable eating by offering classes in gardening and cooking.

“We have the power to help eradicate the childhood obesity epidemic and it’s programs like Edible Schoolyard NYC that are working to do just that,” said Christiane Baker, head of Edible Schoolyard NYC.

Although P.S. 216 is currently the only school to receive such a program, Edible Schoolyard is already planning to extend to more than 25 Brooklyn schools and to create an edible academy in all of New York City boroughs. Perfection!
