Welcome to this year's Food Focus program! We're excited to share our resources with you, and to help expand students' knowledge of food, including nutrition, sustainability, and food preparation.

Our program aims to move the conversation about food from the café to the classroom, hallways, homes and the community. Student awareness of food is often very limited to their own personal experiences. Through eye-catching bulletin boards, classroom lessons, handouts for home, and gardening resources, we can educate students about the importance of eating healthy meals, while also introducing a variety of new ingredients that broaden their food horizons.

Each month's activities highlight seasonal and nutrient-rich foods to engage students about healthful eating and living.
