Foodwise Teens Debuts at CUESA's Farmers Markets
February 5, 2019
Launching in January 2019, Foodwise Teens is a paid job training program where teens build skills to sustain healthy lives and a healthy planet. Building on eight years of success in CUESA’s Schoolyard to Market program, Foodwise Teens transforms CUESA’s youth programming and takes it to the next level. Students learn about sustainable food jobs and get hands-on experience in the garden, in the kitchen, and at the farmers market, while getting paid for their work.
Through the Foodwise Teens program, students build life and job skills; grow, make, and sell their own fruits, vegetables, and food products; and eat good food!
