FoodPrints featured in the The Washington Post

Dec. 13, 2021

The Washington Post journalist, Nicole Asbury, visited FoodPrints at two of our partner schools in November. She followed Whittier kindergarteners through an immersive lesson on seasonality in the garden and Kimball 5th graders cooking Sweet Potato Quesadillas in their kitchen classroom. Principals at both schools raved about the impact of the program on their students and communities. Principal Tiffany Johnson of Whittier said of FoodPrints: “this is one of best investments I could have made.”

All of our school partners and supporters have been incredibly open to food and garden education and continually dedicated to maintaining FoodPrints programming – this drives our program forward and makes the work we do possible.
