Fit-2-Serve gardens over 2 acres of land interspersed throughout our community. The harvest from the gardens not only provides an opportunity to equip people to serve but lends support to our Farm-2-Table classes. Each month (Sept-Apr) of the academic year, approximately 150 1st graders from our local schools learn how food gets from our farms, is prepared and served, then consumed as they gather around the table.
Researchers have shown that encouraging kids to get involved in meal preparation is an effective health promotion strategy for schools and parents. Click here for more info.
We utilize our experiential classroom setting and a teaching kitchen to instruct the students about farms, harvesting, ingredients, who makes it possible to have the food they eat, cooking practices, and so much more!!
