Reaching goals! Kids need to eat healthy, at times it is hard for inner city kids to afford healthy foods. The most affordable foods are usually processed foods and here at PBJTP we believe we can help kids to eat better with healthier habits. Our talented Chef Roman is helping us create a menu which is affordable and healthy for our community kids.
