FRESHFARM FoodPrints embeds comprehensive food education in public elementary schools with the goal of improving health and academic outcomes for children and families. We do this through an interdisciplinary, standards-based curriculum for learning in gardens and kitchens, food access, and partnership with the school meals program.
Demonstrated outcomes include students with greater knowledge of, access to, and willingness to eat nutritious, climate-friendly foods, and greater engagement in schools.
