Slow Food in Schools - "Know Your Veggies"


This school year Slow Food RVa is proud to be a partner in this collaborative pilot program at Linwood Holton Elementary School, which will introduce seasonal Virginia vegetables and fruits to Richmond Public School children and their families.  Each month, a local and season vegetable will be showcased in the school cafeteria/menus, and integrated into classroom curriculum.  Local chefs, farmers, nutrition educators as well as classroom teachers will play roles in educating children about local food, cooking, healthy eating, farming and nutrition.

To learn more about the Know Your Veggies pilot, as well as other resources Slow Food RVa can introduce into your child’s school, contact johnghaddad@hotmail.com.
