Food is Elementary© (FIE) is a unique and vibrant curriculum introduced into schools and communities that teach children about food, nutrition, culture, and healthy living by:

  • Educating children about the relationship between food choices and disease prevention
  • Encouraging a child's natural curiosity and creativity to be the foundation of learning
  • Providing children with the life skill of food preparation through hands-on interactive experience
  • Introducing healthful foods through the traditions and arts of different cultures
  • Involving families and community in classroom teaching, school meals, gardens, and collaborative mural projects

"This is the most creative, organized, and crucial program I have ever been involved in. What a wonderful thing for our children not only to learn to cook and eat healthy, but to be exposed to so many different cultures. I love it!"
                                  
—Denise Jackson, parent aide
