Rebel Venture

The HCZ Kitchen department is excited to announce that we will be working with Rebel Venture. Rebel Venture is a Youth- powered non-profit social enterprise in West Philadelphia that creates healthy and affordable foods for schools. Over the past 18 months, a dedicated group of West Philly high-schoolers and Penn students teamed with the Division of Food Services at the School District of Philadelphia to develop their newest product, Rebel Crumbles.  The Rebel Crumbles are filled with half a cup fruit (apples and cranberries), whole grains, and spices.

This week the Rebel Crumbles is a featured breakfast item on our menu cycle. The product is not only delicious and healthy; it meets nutritional standards of the Department of Health and the Department of Education.  The dedicate group of high- school students played an hands on role in the Rebel Crumble launched. The students were active in developing and designing the product, marketing it, and raising money for the launch.  It is the West Philly Students' mission to expand operations and provide the Rebel Crumble to all students.  It is great to see young students taking an active interest in healthy nutritious foods.

The Kitchen department looks forward to see you at either our kitchens to try this new breakfast item.
