Fighting Hunger with Children Feeding Children Greenhouse & Garden Project

Fighting Hunger with Children Feeding Children Greenhouse & Garden Project

Fighting Hunger with Children Feeding Children Greenhouse & Garden Project

Last year a greenhouse was built in the spirit to fight local childhood hunger. Because of many collaborators, our grassroots effort to fight hunger with fresh produce and dignity became a reality. Today, there is 1 greenhouse, 4 gardens, and 16 collaborators!

The greenhouse is located at the Wyoming Valley Montessori School in Kingston, Pa. The curriculum based program teaches children to cultivate transplants, garden, cook with fresh food, and give back to the community. 70% of the transplants are donated to other  youth-based organizations to grow fresh food to fight hunger using edible landscaping techniques. Once the produce reaches the food pantry, Clancy and her team of Dietetic students provide nutrition education and cooking demonstrations.

Children Feeding Children Featured Recipes

The recipes always feature the fresh food harvested from the project or donated by other local farms such as Old Tioga Farm and Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative. And of course, children are always involved the cooking process. If you are interested in cooking activities for kids, click on the blue button for instant access.
