Market to Mealtime Kids

Helping Kids learn how their food gets from the farm to their plate, at home and at school. 

Market to Mealtime KIDS introduces youth to the food system.  This display-based curriculum shows how food grows on the farm, and travels to the farmers' market or grocery store, to your plate, at home and at school.  Kid friendly, seasonal recipes and classroom lessons provide opportunities to extend learning through food demonstration and tasting and small group, interactive activities.
