Introducing "Farm to Toast" by Explore Ecology
Source: Explore Ecology
The CA Department of Education awarded the Santa Barbara Unified School District (SBUSD) Food Services $133,539 to launch Farm to Toast in three school gardens and kitchens in Santa Barbara.
A new partnership between the SBUSD Food Services and nonprofit Explore Ecology, Farm to Toast has three main components; education, professional development, and increased California-grown produce in school meals.
Students at each of the other SBUSD elementary schools will receive lessons on bread making and enjoy fresh bread.
Explore Ecology educates over 30,000 students in classrooms, on field trips to the Watershed Resource Center and Art From Scrap, and in school gardens throughout Santa Barbara County each year.
