food farming nutrition july2020

As of March 2020, we are now offering this program virtually through Zoom!

ATPF's Food, Farming & Nutrition Program believes that every child should have easy access to local, fresh and healthy food.

Created by ATPF Board Member Pablo Fernandez, Owner of Secret Table, and led by ATPF Volunteer Director Food, Farming & Nutrition Program Carolyn Kates, this program creates opportunities for our kids and families to learn about food, farming and nutrition in their community. We have partnered with Wild Willow Farm in South Bay for 4 workshops in the Spring, each an opportunity for our children and families to help out on the farm, play in the children's garden, pet therapy goats and chickens, and create a healthy lunch with produce they pick fresh from on the farm, guided by ATPF Mom & Chef Maria Hesse.

On-going events such as cooking classes for our teens with autism, farm visits for our families and much more also make up this program.
