The Food Literacy Program would like to support teachers, parents and students as much as possible during this period of learning from home. We know you are juggling a lot of things right now, and definitely don’t want to add to the pressure, but we have made a list of seven easy steps to engaging children in food-based learning via cooking and gardening, with links to activities and resources.
We are also providing “growing kits” to each family with elementary school aged children. These consist of a few sunflower and pea seeds, a container filled with potting mix and planting instructions to get started. They can be picked up at schools (contact your teacher or principal to confirm). If you need extra supples, let us know via the Contact page. Stay well and happy planting!
