Kids Holiday Farmers Market
Students practice food literacy over winter break.

This week Food Literacy Center hosted the Kids Holiday Farmers Market sponsored by Nugget Markets. We sent 97 students home over winter break with 1,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables so they can continue practicing the healthy habits they learn in food literacy class.

Student picking her carrots By sending these students home with fresh produce, they can continue practicing the healthy habits that we have helped them develop in food literacy class. They shop for fresh ingredients, learn how to advocate for veggies at home and in school, and take home a soup recipe and kit made with spice packets donated by the Allspicery. They use the veggies they shop for to recreate a healthy meal at home with their family.
