Food Literacy Academy applications due next Friday, August 15
From August 28 until August 30, the Food Literacy Center will be hosting its fifth three-day course teaching , teaching people how to become “food literacy geniuses,” as we like to call them.
Food literacy geniuses propagate healthy food systems and a sense of fun through their hour-long food literacy programs.
For example, the Busy Bees program includes a brief lesson, an arts and crafts activity, a sampling, and a story, all helping kids to understand how bees catalyze our food systems.
Read a response from fellow intern and food genius Amanda Monyko, explaining her motivations for attending the Food Literacy Academy: http://foodliteracycenter.org/2014/07/17/chat-food-literacy-genius/.
We are looking for more applicants like Amanda who see themselves equally as advocates for sustainable food and effective education for kids.
