Eat for Life" uses a garden as a classroom where students learn to grow food. The program offers our youth an opportunity to learn life and vocational skills that can sustain families and help underserved "food deserts" thrive.
Students also learn how to exercise control over food choices and how food choices can affect heart disease, stroke, some cancers, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and depression.
* Partnerships with local schools with culinary arts programs expand training to include preparation of tasty vegetable dishes. Youth & their families also learn how to take the lead in conducting a farmer's market to sell produce they have grown.
If we give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
When we teach a man how to fish, he eats for a lifetime.
