Real Food SEED (Student Engagement Every Day)

The Real Food SEED (Student Engagement Every Day) project is designed to provide students with authentic learning opportunities connecting them to real food through sensory experiences.  Our programs in the school cafeteria, classroom, school garden, and local farming community engage students in learning about growing food, eating seasonally and mindfully, and preparing and enjoying meals together.  Our goal is to provide all students with the knowledge and skills to make conscious, educated food choices that will nourish them for a lifetime of health.

Untitled No. 1 will serve 12-20 prekindergarten children at our early education center (converting from a single family residence) beginning Fall 2018.  We will meet LEED and WELL certification standards for environmental health including community and individual wellbeing.  Integral to our program is the involvement of our children in the food planning, shopping and raising, preparation, serving, eating, and disposal/cleanup.  In addition to our own edible garden we are next to a park with a learning garden, and 1-2 Expo Line stops from our local farmers market and coop grocery store.
