Field to Table Schools

FoodShare’s award-winning Field to Table Schools program is restoring good food education in schools with hands-on activities, workshops, events and growing projects. Students from JK to Grade 12 as well as teachers and educators learn about composting, innovative food gardens, nutrition, cooking, local and global food systems and more!

Our philosophy on food literacy education is that every interaction with food should be a positive one.  We strive to excite, equip & educate students and teachers on food topics that are both well-rounded and relevant.
