Common Threads Farm - Washington Service Corps

A Partner of the Washington Service Corps

The mission of Common Threads Farm is to connect kids to healthy food in the garden, in the kitchen and at the table, so that kids grow up making food choices that are good for their bodies, their communities and the environment. AmeriCorps members serve as Food Educators in schools, providing nutrition education programs to students that also engage the students’ teachers and school cafeterias. Members provide cooking classes which incorporate healthy eating choices, and build school gardens with the students in which the produce is then utilized by the school cafeterias – creating a ‘seed to table’ educational component.
