Too many kids don’t know where food comes from or have access to healthy, whole food. We’re on a mission to change that. Here’s how:
With your help, we’ve grown 368 gardens and taught 9000 kids how to cook. But we’re not done yet. We need your help.
Why we do it
Improve the health of kids and youth
Make local food accessible and sustainable
Support a healthy
and just food system
Connect communities through food
Share your passion for food
Connect with like-minded people
Contribute when it suits you
Volunteer as your schedule allows, in Greater Vancouver and Victoria
Witness your impact
Enjoy hands-on gardening and cooking
They help build the community and next generation of potential chefs. Everyone eats, and it is fantastic to teach eating for more than just the sake of it.

Besides becoming more adventurous eaters I know my students gained a much better appreciation for locally grown things and how much fun it can be to experiment in the kitchen with food.
