Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids works with Delaware schools to start vegetable gardening programs that are integrated into the science curriculum and that operate during the academic year. Each spring and fall, our schools experience “seed-to-table” growing, and every student is involved in hands-on gardening lessons that support content standards. HFHK is the ONLY organization in Delaware that has implemented multiple, successful school gardening programs!
