About Us

  • Teach students about where food comes from, what food insecurity is and what to do about it
  • Grow food indoors and outdoors, meet local farmers and cook whole foods
  • Showcase food career choices to create more resilient communities in the future
  • Connecting students to essential tools needed to thrive, promoting health and wealth for both our future generations and our planet.
