From weekly visits to the local community garden, to on-site cooking activities and berry-picking field trips, participating children enjoy plenty of opportunities to learn about healthy food choices. Sites also partner with the Burlington School Food Project to provide fresh meals that meet USDA Child Nutrition Guidelines.
With so many children in Vermont dependent on school meals, summer food service programs serve an important role in combating food insecurity. We love celebrating the work of meal sites around the state, and especially love seeing those who integrate nutrition education into their programming. Way to go, Burlington Recreation and Nutrition!
