MEET THE HOSTS:

This series is brought to you by Florida Agriculture in the Classroom and the University of Florida IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program. We are proud to partner with school districts, educators, producers, state agencies, and school garden support organizations throughout the state of Florida.

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom (FAITC) is a statewide non-profit organization that connects kids to healthy food and Florida agriculture through educational resources, teacher professional development, garden grants, and other farm to school programming. FAITC has a vision to ensure every student in PreK-12 education is aware of and appreciates agriculture and natural resources in Florida.

UF/IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program (FNP) works in many counties across Florida to help limited-resource families access more nutritious food choices on a budget and adopt healthier eating and physical activity habits to reduce the risk of obesity and chronic disease. As one of Florida's SNAP-Ed providers, FNP offers direct nutrition education, technical assistance, and garden funding to schools with 50% or more Free/Reduced Lunch status.



This material was partially funded by the USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
SNAP funding is provided through the Florida Department of Children and Families.
