Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids

Mission Statement

Our mission is to design and implement food and garden-based educational programs for Delaware schools that support content standards and promote student health.

About Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids

Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids (HFHK) specializes in designing and implementing school vegetable gardening programs that are integrated into the Delaware science curriculum. Our Education Cultivation program allows every student from kindergarten-fifth grade in a school of approximately 600 students to engage in hands-on gardening activities. Growing cool weather and fast-growing crops, students are able to experience "seed to table" growing each spring and fall. Over the course of approximately two growing seasons, teachers are trained in our garden curriculum and are able to continue the program with support from HFHK for seasons to come. Currently, our Education Cultivation program is implemented in over 25 schools and serves about 10,000 Delaware public school students per year.
