Frequently Asked Questions

About Our Field Trips

Yes.  Not only is it an appropriate activity, we have found it to be one of the most gratifying for these students as well as for us!  We have successfully worked with all levels of special needs students.
Absolutely.  Call Chef Arthur anytime with your questions.  His direct number is 305-753-6644
The time needed for the event is affected by a number of different factors. 
  • The age of the children will affect the time needed.  Younger children take longer then older children.
  • The size of the group affects the time.  Larger groups take longer then smaller groups.
  • When we find the room with all the needed tables and chairs in place, that saves of time.  If we don’t have to gather tables and chairs from other rooms in the school we can save a lot of time.
That said, we can usually get the job done in time regardless of the above circumstances.  We can simply work at a faster pace if needed.  However, when there is a time limitation we appreciate knowing well in advance.
Yes.  We always appreciate when the room is ready for us when we arrive.  Please have the needed number of tables and chairs in the room where the event will take place.  There is no need to arrange the table and chairs, just have them in the room.
3 day’s before your field trip you will receive an email from us requesting a final head count.  If your “final head count” number is higher or lower, you can make the adjustment by replying to that email.  If we do not receive an adjusted number, you will be billed according to the original number.  If you supply us with a new number, the new number will be the amount you will be billed for.
Yes, your event can start anytime; whatever is best for you.  We are only suggesting 9am as a start time as this time works best for most organizations.  If you would like a start time before or after 9am please send an email request to art@therealfoodacademy.com and follow up with a phone call to 305-753-6644 if a confirmation is not received within a few days of the requested change.
NO

We couldn't possibly be more grateful for the incredible experience provided to our students. They truly loved the cooking class, and look forward to having another one. This is an email I received from a parent after school: Hello, I just had to let you know how much Evan enjoyed today's cooking field trip at school. He has been talking about it since he got home, and told me what a "great learning experience it was." He was so happy when I picked him up- thank you so much for giving him this opportunity. Best, Ms. Motter Thanks again, and please email me with promotional materials so that I can inform students, parents, and other teachers about The Real Food Academy.
