Ask your students to tell you where our food comes from. Do they respond with a restaurant or a grocery store name? Do they suggest it is made in a factory? What about on a farm? Do any of your students hint about our food supply's connection to nature and our environment?

Healthy Sprouts Deadline Extended

Due to Hurricane Sandy we will be extending the deadline for the Healthy Sprouts Award applications until November 5th at 11:59pm.
