Growing Minds @ University

Growing Minds @ University (GM@U) is a partnership between ASAP’s Growing Minds Farm to School Program, Dietetic Internship programs at Western Carolina University, Lenoir-Rhyne University, and Appalachian State University, and Dietetic Internship preceptors.

Through trainings and resources, GM@U equips pre-service students with knowledge and experiences to be able to incorporate local food and farm to school/farm to preschool activities into their careers as dietitians and to create environments that are conducive to those activities. We aim to help students utilize farm to school/preschool as a way to enhance the health and education of the children and families they serve. 

In working with Dietetic Internship preceptors, GM@U helps to create and promote a culture of health around local food within organizations and businesses.

Contact us if you are interested in becoming a GM@U partner.
