Garden To Cafe
“Research shows that school gardens lead to increased consumption and preference for fruits and vegetables for students.“
Garden to Cafe
Austin Independent School district (AISD) Nutrition and Food Services currently runs Garden-to-Cafe, Food Trucks, Clean Labels and Local and Sustainable Purchasing programs. Garden-to-Cafe is a unique program which partners students, community members, teachers and adminstrators with the goal of serving healthy, fresh, garden-grown foods to students through school meal programs.
- Grow Local – Access to healthy locally grown foods teaching them different foods that are available in the season.
- Healthy Choices – Motivate students to grow healthy food and to make long-term healthy food choices.
- Safety – Garden to Cafe program has put in place standards for water quality, contamination, sanitary practices and harvesting procedures which the children participating in the program have to adhere and who in turn learn about food safety.
- Sense of accomplishment – Nothing can beat the joy of seeing the food you grew and harvested served to the whole school in the cafeteria.
