When students grow fruits and vegetables for themselves, they are much more likely to enjoy eating them. That’s why Feed Fannin supports both in-school and after-school education programs at several local elementary and middle schools.
Through our support services, we also help the schools build new educational gardens and sustain existing gardens with supplies, training, and consultation. We provide seeds, starts, soil, gardening tools and supplies, garden education, and design consultation.
What are students learning?
Students gain a keen appreciation for where their food comes from, and the children come to understand that they need proper nutrition, just as their plants do. When they feast upon the food they grow, they also learn that they actually do like fruits and vegetables.
