It has been like Christmas for me today unpacking the cooking kit! I am so excited to use it. I am trying to decide what to try tomorrow.

I don’t know what you are doing when you cook with those kids, but my daughter has never touched tomatoes and now she loves them! She wants to make salsa all the time, and it’s become something we can do together. Every time we go to the grocery store she begs me to buy salsa ingredients.

The Farm to School to Community  project has built strong positive relationships between Pinnacle Elementary parents, community members, and farmers.  We were able to provide numerous whole school fresh food tasting, hands-on gardening projects, and a school wide visit to a local farm.  We look forward to using these opportunities to provide more activities for our student for next school year.

Farm to School is such an exciting program to work with. [Growing Minds staff] are fantastic with the kids and knowledge is empowering.
