Farm to School
Food is something every child can relate to. Farm to school involves using cooking demonstrations, cafeteria taste testings, nutrition lessons, garden plots,and farm field trips to engage students in dynamic, hands-on learning and supports teachers in meeting the state standards for elementary education. Teachers are seeing students become incredibly engaged in this hands-on approach to teaching curriculum standards across all subjects using food, cooking, and gardening as a lens.
