Food Literacy Center's mission is to inspire kids to eat their vegetables. They teach children in low-income elementary schools cooking, nutrition, gardening, and active play to improve our health, environment, and economy.
The mission was born to create change today for a healthy, sustainable tomorrow through community food education. The founder of the foundation, Amber, is joined by her six staff members, community members who make up the center’s board, volunteer committees, and support system. As a growing team, they’ve combined their creative ideas, expertise, and energy around food, health, and social change to improve the community!
Together they have created amazing programs including Food Literacy Education, a student-led and maintained garden, recipe kit distribution centers, and even kids farmers markets!
