On Dec. 7, Korean food was served for lunch at Junior High School 189 in Flushing, Queens, in the first event of its kind in New York. Korean cuisine, such as kimchi (a traditional Korean side dish of fermented napa cabbage mixed with red pepper powder, chopped garlic, etc.), bulgogi (grilled marinated beef with vegetables), and japchae (stir-fried sweet potato noodles with vegetables and meats), was presented to students and faculty. The event was part of a pilot program initiated by the Korean Cuisine Globalization Committee, or KCGC, in partnership with the Korean American Parents Association of Greater New York, in an effort to include Korean foods in the New York City public school lunch menu at those schools which have a large enrollment of Korean students.

[KCGC is a group of Korean restaurant owner chefs in New York and New Jersey. After more than a year and a half of effort, the group presented the first Korean dishes for lunch at eight public schools in northern New Jersey as part of a pilot program, which began in the Northern Valley Regional High School in Old Tappan on Sep. 21 this year. The group’s goal is to expand the program by bringing it to New York City. The program is targeting 60 schools in 26 school districts in Queens over the next few years.]
