    Rise No 1 has partnered with Uplift Education to teach students about running a green restaurant.

    Many of the elementary children participating in the "rise n°1" and Uplift Education program have never eaten at a restaurant before. Let alone, a soufflerie like "rise n°1."

    But during April and May, fifth and sixth graders from five different public charter schools will visit "rise n°1" to learn about running a green restaurant.

    "We've actually done a lot of recycling at Hampton and we started a recycling program and now they are seeing a connection between that program and what it's like here in the business world," said Hampton Prep teacher, Zachary Adorno.

    Rise No 1 has partnered with Uplift Education to teach students about running a green restaurant.

    The folks at the restaurant are teaching by example, imparting their knowledge to school children.

    "rise n°1" offers much more than its crave worthy French fare. It has what owner Hedda Gioia Dowd refers to as a "five sensory" experience.

    Rise No 1 is one of only two souffleries stateside -- and it's found right here at Inwood Village in Dallas.

    Dowd speaks about the importance of teaching children about good nutrition and the environment with conviction.

    Hand-written thank you letters framed throughout the restaurant show the appreciation felt by children who may not have otherwise eaten at a French restaurant.

    It's a fun and informative way for the school children to taste new foods and learn about the environment at the same time.

    "We just really want them to get excited about -- if I want to work in a restaurant some day, or if I want to work in a green industry someday, 'What do I, as a fifth grader, need to do to succeed in that career path?'" said Communications Manager for Uplift Education, Britni Marny.
