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 [email protected] 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.
Our field trips are open to boys and girls ages 3 through 14 who may be interested in exploring the culinary arts.

Never Dsiappointing!

From start to finish The Real Food Academy was an absolute pleasure to have at our school. Both Arthur and his Assistant were very quick with setting up and efficent with using all their time with the students. The expierence was a lot of fun for both the kids & teachers and we can't wait to invite The Real Food Academy back to our facility!

The best form of a field trip idea!

The Real Food Academy is the best form of a field trip idea. The academy comes to your school and shows the students how to cook and learn about nutrition. The students are engaged in learning as well as listening to music in between. Chef Arthur speaks from the heart about learning what is "Real Food".
- Grace C.

Healthy Food - Healthy Bodies

Our Step Ahead Program students had a great time and learned about making healthy food choices. A huge shout out to Art for taking the time to explain what types of foods are good for you and what type of foods are not good for you. Also, it happened to be Valentines day so the Strawberries and organic chocolate sauce was tasty and perfect for today's In House field trip. Thank you again Real Food Academy for making it a special visit today.
- Kevin James Devine

Teacher 1st grade

- Cayon

Awesome experience

Arthur was great! He was patient and very professional. The staff was very informative and helpful. Very flexible and punctual timing. Loved every minute of his service. The playlist was great and my kids were literally dancing out of their seat. It’s hard to keep middle school student engaged and Arthur did exactly that. Thank you so much. I can’t wait till your next visit!
- Jessica Marc

Great Experience for our Students.

What I liked best about The Real Food Academy was the emphasis on eating healthy, using whole foods to prepare delicious meals. I also like the element of hands on experience, giving the students an opportunity to learn proper cooking as a life skill. This activity fits well with our mission of personal empowerment. Keep up the good work folks.

"..incredible experience.."

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.

The Experience Was Spectacular!

We recently had the Real Food Academy visit our K-5th grade classes. To put it simply, the experience for the students AND faculty was spectacular! The chefs were so organized and well prepared that the cooking class went off without a hitch. And even more importantly than this, the chefs worked SO well with the kids! My school will definitely be planning another field trip with the Real Food Academy!
