FEAST Curriculum
Garden & Health Lessons

In 2015, Food Literacy Center and its community partners formed a collaborative project called FEAST, or Food Education and School Transformation, to inspire students at Sacramento’s low-income elementary schools to eat fresh and locally-sourced fruits and veggies. We collaborate with Health Education Council and Soil Born Farms to create family health-centered programs to fill a gap in the school district. Together, our programs teach cooking skills, nutrition, gardening, and fitness to students and their parents. FEAST improves family health by inviting kids to inspire their parents.
