Food Literacy Resources


Skills for a healthy future

Food literacy is the knowledge and understanding of how food choices impact our health, the environment, the community and our nation. We believe that if you teach kids to eat and enjoy real food early on they will be great eaters throughout life, and that good food = good thinking.
