We believe that our schools can be powerful drivers for food justice - both in terms of what is taught and what is served. We work to put food education on the menu in every classroom, supporting teachers to fully integrate food education into the standard curriculum. We also work to put environmentally sustainable food into the cafeterias, supporting city officials and convening farm to school partners.
A professional development support system, resources and network for teachers to help them maximize their school gardens and integrate food education into the standard curriculum.
