Much to my dismay, I missed last week's ChopChop Kickoff Event that took place with Governor Patrick at Community Services, a social services agency in Jamaica Plain. Since then, all I've been hearing from my colleagues is how awesome the event was and how much fun it was to watch the Governor prepare the first ChopChop recipe — a delicious chunky cranberry applesauce — with the young people who were there.
Fortunuately for me (and for you if you missed the event, too!), DPH was on site with a camera in hand, and came back with a video that perfectly captured the excitement of the day. You’ll hear from Governor Patrick, DPH Commissioner John Auerbach, and ChopChop founder Sally Sampson on why we're all excited about this new partnership and newsletter.
If you haven't checked out the debut ChopChop Mass in Motion e-newsletter, visit www.mass.gov/massinmotion/chopchop to view the recipe and learn fun facts about Massachusetts-grown apples and cranberries. Be sure to check in every month for a new newsletter and recipe!
