About Wa-Shouiku –Learn. Cook. Eat Japanese!-

The Wa-Shokuiku Project ( is a new initiative from TABLE FOR TWO USA (*). Wa-Shokuiku combines the Japanese words “Washoku” which refers to Japanese food and, “Shokuiku”, food education and is a 7-part series of classes on Japanese food and food culture for American elementary and middle school-age students.  Our goal for the Wa-Shokuiku program is that students will be equipped with practical knowledge and skills regarding healthy eating, Japanese foodways, and best practices. The objectives are (1) to expand students’ palates by teaching how to prepare tasty and healthy dishes using washoku preparation techniques, (2) Include discussion about manners, respect toward food and simple relevant Japanese words, and (3) introduce food related concerns, such as obesity and waste while discussing do-able daily actions inspired by shokuiku. Our instructors and volunteers implement and teach the Wa-Shokuiku Curricula in schools across New York City, Washington D.C., Boston and California.
