Families Engage in Farm to Preschool One Bite at a Time

Yes! We have to get rid of the idea that there is "kid-friendly food" and that it has to be chicken nuggets and fries. We don't always realize our own food bias that we might be passing along to the kiddos.

Stuffed and Starved, part 8: Just For the Health of It

Are you guys still hoping to install a garden at some point? We'd LOVE to help get that going and work with the families on developing growing skills and providing more fresh produce for Just Food. I know there would be lots of community members who would be excited to partner on that. Keep us posted!

DCCDA earns $77,500 to continue Families, Farmers and Educators United

Yes, we are looking forward to following up on the policy development. So far, we've had several centers commit to including components of the FFEU program in their parent handbooks, and two had already done so. One center has also added a policy committing to the use of a health education curriculum. We'll keep you all posted as these evolve!
