Friends, Donors and Supporters,

School-age children in our communities need a good diet in order to develop, grow healthy, learn, protected from diseases, and to have enough energy to get through the daily life activities. For their futures and their own children’s futures, they need not only to eat well, but also to learn how to eat well, and how to grow their own vegetables and fruits.

In past two months, we had three volunteers reviewing our curriculum and family visits. 6 from our 9 schools have been successful in inspiring vegetable gardens, school farms and good eating habits in the family circules. 75% of family visited, appreciated our efforts, that their children are asking for a balance plate and vegetable gardens.

Our Secrets of success are we respect local expertise and taste, provide familiar produce, propose small acceptable changes, and show clear links to children’s health and food preferences.

We partner with you to help ensure this happens.

Thank you.
