- Teams up with teachers, school cafeteria staff and district administrators to teach about healthy food and model healthy eating
- Collaborates with and creates markets for local farmers and ranchers to present tasty, nutritious food to school children
We could not carry out our mission without the generous support of community members and donors. Thank you!
