"On Thursday, March 28th, 2019, AAFCS learned that Rachael Ray had commented on a Good Morning America segment that home economics wasn't taught in schools any longer. AAFCS immediately responded via Twitter and Facebook, and followed up with the letter (linked here) to the producers at the Rachael Ray Show. We look forward to continuing the conversation with Ms. Ray!"

Hooksett 7th Grade Foods and Nutrition Students Collaborate with Hip Peas Farm

June 22, 2018

Foods and Nutrition students gathered their trowels and rakes and headed to the new Hip Peas Farm in Hooksett, NH in May. Students were welcomed by farmers and staff, toured the land, and learned the tricks and tips to plant a variety of herbs, fruits and vegetables. We’re so grateful to the farm staff and the New England’s Tap House Grille staff and owners for including our students in their newest endeavor. We can’t wait to return to the Farm to harvest!

Mrs. Olsen and Mrs. Tremblay

This video was created by two of our talented students. Watch to see how excited the classes were to be involved in this amazing opportunity!
