SEED 2 FEED Summer Youth Program

During summer 2014, Zenful Bites partnered with ECO City Farms to provide cooking classes and prepare lunches for the SEED2FEED summer camp for high school students. From ECO City Farms:. 

"Through the hands-on work of growing food, cooking, and food justice outreach, our summer SEED 2 FEED program will grow strong, healthy, and inspired teens who live in Prince George’s County. We create a safe space where they can experience leadership development, personal growth, collaboration and job training.

Over the four weeks, young people will acquire skills and knowledge about a sustainable food system through urban farming, composting, nutrition education, and healthy living. They will help build the Autumn Woods community garden, cook (and eat) delicious food, and find their own voices through photography, poetry and art. Through field trips, they will explore food and health in Prince George’s County.

Experienced urban farmers, artists, nutritionists and environmentalists will teach the youth about sustainability, local food production, healthy cooking and eating."

In addition to the SEED 2 FEED summer youth program, Zenful Bites provided cooking demos for adults as part of ECO City Farms' community nutrition workshops. Check out this blog on ECO City Farms' website about our work with their community nutrition workshops.
