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. Finally, we share some of our favorite recipes for nutritious snacks and treats for you to enjoy cooking and eating all summer long.
FoodPrints Summer Camp at Home will begin on June 15th! Learn more and sign up to connect with FoodPrints over the summer by email and/or text message!
The last week of this unusual school year is here. Our FoodPrints Teachers want you to know how much they have appreciated all the cooking, eating, gardening, and learning that took place this year – both at school and at home. Our teachers have provided opportunities for students and families to laugh, learn, cook, eat, and grow together.
We send a huge thank you to our partner schools, students, parents and financial supporters for joining us and showing that FoodPrints really can happen Anywhere. This slideshow highlighting moments from our virtual learning experiences is for you!
From March through May, our school and home gardens have grown a lot this spring! In March, we were planting radish seeds. Now, we are harvesting fully grown radishes. In April, our strawberry plants were covered. Now, ripe, bright red strawberries are ready to be picked. Spring in a garden is a time of dramatic growth and change.
Watch this slideshow to see springtime transformations of gardens at our schools and our teachers’ homes.
Summer is the best time of year to enjoy juicy, fresh, and delicious fruits and vegetables! Check out our favorite nutritious and tasty summertime treats, snacks, and salads that include summer produce like strawberries, rhubarb, peaches, blueberries, corn, and more!

FoodPrints Summer Camp at Home
Beginning June 15th, FoodPrints will share weekly Summer Camp at Home calendars. Each week will include a mix of live classes, pre-recorded classes, and print materials that will help you cook delicious and nutritious food, join food and environment-themed book clubs with live visits from authors, and engage in indoor and outdoor garden and science projects through the summer.
We look forward to cooking, reading and gardening this summer with you!
