Farmer Liaison and Delivery: LunchLAB!

Lord Roberts Elementary, Total Education High School, Fresh Roots, and Growing Chefs! have partnered together to create LunchLAB a new education program where students learn to grow, cook, and share delicious food! What’s for lunch (or dinner… or breakfast… or snack)? is the question du jour. LunchLAB is about helping students be able to answer that question on their own. Students start by growing their own. Then, supplemented by food from local farms, 8 youth cook with their teacher and a chef in residence twice per week for 150 of their peers. LunchLAB is about connecting Good Food to kids, and helping them be able to cook and share that food with their peers. Because if you’re hungry, you cannot learn. That’s why LunchLAB exists. And we need your help to close the loop from farm to fork!
