How we've shifted programs during COVID-19
Educators, teachers, program managers – watch our discussion about how we have addressed the needs of our kids and families during the pandemic through distance learning, take-home recipe kits, and partnerships.
Our mission is to inspire kids to eat their vegetables. We teach children in low-income elementary schools cooking, nutrition, gardening, and active play to improve our health, environment, and economy.
With over 9 years of success addressing these issues in Sacramento, we have pivoted the methods used to deliver our mission to meet our students and their families’ needs during the current crisis, Some of our current programs include:
- Redesigned our curriculum to be available free online for distance learning with downloadable lesson plans and recipes.
- Launched weekly recipe videos on Facebook Live
- Partnered with SCUSD Nutrition Services to distribute Recipe Kits filled with fresh produce.
- Partnered with school social workers to reach the most vulnerable families with fresh groceries and resources.
We have received a growing number of questions from similar programs from all around the country so we hosted a discussion to answer your questions.
Speakers include Food Literacy Center’s founder & CEO, Amber Stott and Program Manager, Evelyn Morales.
