A writer-editor-teacher’s quote of the week #80

The goal of the ESY curriculum is to empower students with the knowledge and values to make food choices that are healthy for them, their communities, and the environment.

The curriculum becomes more relevant, engaging, and further supports their classroom achievement by bringing academic subjects to life. In addition to intentional academic connections, the curriculum also develops in students: a sense of curiosity and dignity; the ability to work as a team to complete a job well; respect for oneself and others; an appreciation for diversity; and an understanding of how the ritual of eating together at the table connects families and communities.
