“Our programs grow with our children encouraging curiosity, creating a relationship with food, and improving consumption. Synergistically, we transform children's access to nutrient dense food and scratch cooking and prepare for the future by building capacity for school food professionals with our mission. This is equity work - all children deserve to be nourished.”
