Common Threads partnered with Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to create Small Bites TV episodes which premiered on their KLCS PBS channel.  These videos supported LAUSD’s Wellness Program by combining healthy cooking and physical activity into one episode. Common Threads Chef Instructor, Monti Carlo worked with LAUSD to record nutritional videos that students and families can use as resources to help improve their overall wellness.
