Fruit and Vegetable Education
Case Studies from the Field
Project Produce - a former fruit and veggie granting program of the Chef Ann Foundation - was designed to create experiential nutrition education when and where students make their food choices: in the cafeteria. The program provides funds to support food costs to incorporate school-wide fruit and vegetable tastings into the school's nutrition program. These case studies highlight Project Produce grantees' including their project descriptions, successes, and challenges.
