We have absolutely no idea what happened when Roy Choi met Jamie Oliver and 50 Cent, but through some series of events, Choi is appearing on their jointly-produced new documentary series on the Sundance Channel, Dream School, airing October 28th at 10 pm EST.
But let’s not get bogged down in the details, because it’s part of Choi’s mission to bring better eating to kids from low-income families, which he does by teaching them how to cook with fresh ingredients. He has a ways to go, though — one of the students admits that she doesn’t eat with the ingredients in her basket, like tomatoes or parsley. (“If there was some chicken nuggets or fries, yeah, that would have been cool.” )
One step at a time, we guess.
