• Our Mission

    Chef Spike Mendelsohn started Good Stuff Gardens for the DC branch of KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) to demonstrate to young students that healthy eating is fun, easy and important. After being inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign, Chef Spike realized his responsibility to help ensure that children live healthier lifestyles. Good Stuff Gardens allows Chef Spike to work directly with kids to plant, grow, cook and eat delicious, fresh foods.
