Who Grew My Lunch?

Who Grew My Lunch? Is a project that is geared toward promoting food literacy for students in grades K-12. Food literacy is understanding where food comes from, the impacts of health, the environment and the economy as well as how to grow, prepare, and prefer nutritious food. We are launching this project because children, families and communities stand to benefit from a better understanding today’s food system. Food literacy education engages students to learn new skills and value the hard work of local farmers.

We are looking for volunteers!

As a volunteer, you would select and read a children’s book relating to food literacy, or show a short film to a class and lead students through an activity related to growing vegetables, nutrition, and/or local food sources. The Center for Rural Partnerships will provide materials, training, and logistical support.
