Our Kitchen is The Heart of Golestan
At Golestan we nurture our children with love, kindness and also good food! We only serve whole foods – all meals and snacks are prepared in-house by our kitchen team. We even bake our own crackers and bread. All our ingredients are fresh, organic and to the extent possible, local. All our meat is grass fed and pastured/free range, delivered directly from Marin Sun Farms.
- Fruits and vegetables are seasonal and sourced from local farms through Veritable Vegetable*.
- We only serve full fat organic dairy products, our yogurt comes from Strauss Family Creamery.
- All of our dry goods are sourced from Hummingbird Wholesale*.
At Golestan, we promote healthy and conscientious habits from an early age; this includes eating habits. We continually expose children to different ingredients and flavors so that they may develop a palette that is open to a variety of tastes. When not in a global pandemic (like in the photo above), the children sit around the table with their teachers and enjoy family–style meals. In 2020-2021, all meals are served in each indoor/outdoor classroom and enjoyed from a physically safe distance.
