Phone call with Laura from Slow Food SF

Spoke on the phone with Laura from Slow Food San Francisco today about various organizations and programs she knows about in the Bay Area and she provided me with a solid list of resources:

Education Outside ~ a San Francisco organization that targets science education programs in urban public elementary schools through hands-on learning in school gardens. She recommended I check out their online resource database.

Healthy Planet USA ~ Foundation in San Francisco that believes in the power of educating the next generation of eaters in order to improve the health of the community. Their goal is to build a garden at every school in America.

Foodwise Kids ~ A free program for elementary school classes that uses the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market as a classroom for empowering the next generation of healthy eaters.

Cooking Matters ~ A program ran by 18 Reasons that offers free, six-week-long series
of cooking and nutrition classes throughout the Bay Area.

She also mentioned Veggielution and  Get Healthy San Mateo
