Webinar – Garden to Cafeteria: Successes, Challenges and Models from Across the U.S.
June 23, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Have you ever wondered what it takes to get your school garden produce into the lunchroom? This month, we will be discussing the concept of Garden to Cafeteria (GTC), which serves as an incredible educational opportunity for students and can greatly contribute to changing a school food culture. However, successfully implementing a GTC program will require some planning around food safety protocols, proper training, and partnership development. Slow Food USA will describe our successes working with the county health department and food service to develop a robust GTC program in Denver, CO, and we will hear about other exciting models from across the U.S.
Come hear guest presenters:
- Kyla Van Deusen, Program Manager for Captain Planet Foundation’s Project Learning Garden
- Bang Tran, FoodCorps Service Member for Captain Planet Foundation in Atlanta, GA
- Drew Thomas, School Garden Coordinator for Chicago Public Schools
- Tristana Pirkl, Grant Programs Manager, Whole Kids Foundation
