Outreach and Education → In the Schools

The Healthy Snacks Off-Site  programs send our outreach employees into the local schools, camps and community centers to teach kids about healthy food through a fun and playful healthy snack cooking class.  Kids learn to cut their own vegetables, cook with a wok and make their own smoothies. The Co-op collaborates with other organizations, teachers and other concerned citizens to offer a healthy snack curriculum to as many kids as possible all year long.

Food Adventures, a collaboration with the Nutrition Center in Pittsfield,  helps to bring these ideas into schools with an in-class learning environment.    Employees from both organizations combine efforts to teach a diverse and ever-evolving curriculum.
