Our Field-to-Fork Club is an after-school program that offers students the opportunity to enhance their culinary abilities, get their hands dirty, and engage in educational activities in a relaxed and joyful environment. Each week, club members work together to prepare a recipe with fresh, seasonal ingredients and complete garden tasks and other activities in their school’s raised beds.
Each student takes home a small share of vegetables from Field Day Family Farm and various pantry items from Rainbow Blossom Natural Food Markets in order to practice their newfound culinary skills at home with their families. Field-to-Fork Club provides a space for students to learn the connection between growing, preparing, & eating food and empower them to do just that!
In 2017, 92% of the families we served were preparing meals with more vegetables at home. 73% of our students were more involved in preparing meals with their families, and 80% asked their families to buy more fresh fruits and vegetables. We’re working towards our vision of creating healthy and equitable communities, where people and places thrive!
