Our Nonprofit Partner: The Edible Schoolyard Project

Edible Schoolyard Project is a nonprofit partner with Family Food Fest 2018 on March 4, 2018.

We are proud to announce that one of our nonprofit partners for the inaugural Family Food Fest will be Edible Schoolyard NYC.

Edible Schoolyard NYC believes equal access to healthy food is essential. They partner with public schools to integrate garden and kitchen classes into the school day. By empowering students to grow and cook their own food, they aim to transform the hearts, minds, and eating habits of young New Yorkers. 

In addition to directly running programs in schools, Edible Schoolyard NYC also offers Professional Development to teachers and staff looking to implement or improve programs in their own schools.
