What are the appropriate grade levels?


Is there a limit to the number of participants?

4 classrooms

The theme for this project is:

Food, Nutrition, Cooking

How can a student impact the planet as a whole? Can a student’s choices have a ripple effect?

This project will demonstrate the impact that each student has in his/her choices. Our food spend and eating habits can affect not only our energy levels and academic performance, but also the quality of the natural world we live in.

91% of children today do not eat the daily requirement of veggies. Yet study after study shows that a plant based diet is critical to our own health as well as the health planet.

Through a multi-touch point project with Nurture, students will learn about the importance of eating a rainbow of fruits and veggies, and will get empowered in the kitchen to feed themselves and others.
