About the Program: 

We are a brand new lunch program that is reforming the old school re-heated foods into farm fresh organic fruits and vegetables.  Through donations from the Orfalea Foundation of Santa Barbara, Ca we have built a full service kitchen that is feeding 350-400 student each day.  We have a farm gleaning program through Santa Ynez Valley Fruit & Vegetable Rescue.  The organic local farms are gleaned daily, and truck loads of the fresh organic produce is brought to our kitchen and made in to delicious soups, salads, sauces and dressings for the students at Solvang's "Viking Cafe". 

We like to think of our model as a restaurant for kids!!!

We have a small educational garden on site, right outside the cafeteria doors! We have plans in the future to plant a production garden to raise money for our s'cool foods program.
