Want to to teach children about healthy eating, local produce and the elements of taste? Then join Spoons Across America as a volunteer in the NYC public schools. Our first program of the year
, Take a Taste with Spoons: Apples, begins next week and we are looking for volunteers to help implement the curriculum in classrooms across the city. Register online and join us at the volunteer training Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00.
Through this program, students learn about the elements of taste, sample locally grown apple varieties, and take an apple recipe home to share with their families. These activities are designed to celebrate fresh, local, and seasonal food and encourage direct and long lasting connections with locally grown produce and farmers.
Can’t volunteer the week of October 22nd but still want to help? Fill out a registration form to keep up-to-date on future opportunities.
