We miss our families and students during this time school is closed! But we are excited to share FoodPrints Anywhere – regular posts with FoodPrints learning and activities that help build nutrition knowledge, extend science and math education, and help families cook and eat FoodPrints recipes together at home.
Join us in celebrating our partner schools, students, and families. Enjoy two slideshows – one about virtual FoodPrints programming that has taken place over the past two months, another about plant growth in our home and school gardens through the spring.
Read up on helpful tips for at-home plant care, whole grains, and how to make whole grain muffins and oatmeal using ingredients you have on hand.
Learn all about seeds, cook vegetable fried rice with ingredients in your pantry and fridge, and get creative with homemade bird feeders.
Make discoveries about soil, learn how to make broth for soup from leftover vegetable scraps, and get creative with homemade animal puppets.
Plan and cook scrumptious bowls of soup for your whole family, explore fruits and vegetables in your kitchen with all 5 Senses, find out what it’s like to be a Food Critic, enjoy DC’s beautiful spring blooms, and make robots, decorated tin cans, and mandalas out of anything you find in your recycle bin.
Enjoy Delicious Dinner Bowls with your family, grow seeds from ingredients in your kitchen and plant them in homemade newspaper pots, make your very own Mancala game board out of trash (we really mean it!), and more.
See what FoodPrints teachers have been up to since school closed, engage students in learning about “Eating the Rainbow,” take the great salad dressing ratio challenge, take a tour of a school garden and make your own seed cups, and team up on food waste at home.
Find food access and other learning resources to help families in this time of COVID-19 school closure.
