Colorful wildflowers on a California hillside. Hey folks, We just received our wildflower seeds from General Mills!  We hope you were able to take advantage of their great offer.  It looks like they gave away all the seeds they could find.  In fact, they sent out 1.5 BILLION seeds and they ran out of seeds to give away.  We know the effort will pay off by supporting the local bee population and beautifying the country side.

Spring has sprung! Team Nutrition has several Garden-Based Resources to connect nutrition education to school and child care gardens, local farms, and farmers markets. Use these resources to teach children where their foods come from and get them excited about eating more fruits and vegetables. Remember, healthy habits take root when kids are young!

 


Manteca Farm to School 

Join our efforts to connect Manteca USD schools with local & regional food growers in order to serve farm-fresh produce in our schools! We promote hands-on learning activities such as school gardening, farm visits, and culinary classes in addition to the integration of food-related education into regular standards-based classroom curriculum.
