Enfield, Third Grade
Farm to Table Program
The ICSD Farm to Table Program is a summer and afterschool program funded by a five-year 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) grant. Each of the programs at four ICSD elementary schools (Beverly J. Martin, Belle Sherman, Cayuga Heights, and Enfield) create case studies that investigate some aspect of how food gets from the farm to the table.
We partner with Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Food Studies Institute. Teachers also work closely with the Youth Farm and many other local farms and food producers on weekly field trips. We create a menu with ICSD Child Nutrition that allows students to prepare and eat whole foods, including fresh local fruits and vegetables.
