Our Mission

To support students as they learn and advocate for informed choices by bridging the lessons they learn in their classrooms to the foods on their lunch trays, at home, and in their communities.


Our Vision

To create a world of knowledgeable and engaged changemakers for an equitable, sustainable, and accessible food future.


Our Core Values

We encourage curiosity about the connections between food, wellness, and community.

We demonstrate and inspire empathy and respect for all through our focus on cultural humility and community empowerment. We are committed to self-reflection and self-critique as an ongoing process.

We spread knowledge by teaching with the intent that students will teach others what they learn.

We ignite excitement for learning by integrating food into topics relevant to students’ interests.

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
