These tables will provide our Eat Your Veggies mobile cooking education program a great deal of ease when we are working at our partnering school sites with excited children, during classes or at our demonstration booth on Saturdays. When students range in size, these tables are perfect for any teaching moments. ($1,000)

Experiences here can have life-long impacts on youth, our farm and our planet. The requests are far greater than our current budget. This fund will support field trips, summer camp experiences, after school programs, teen empowerment and job training. ($5,000)
