Growing CACFP Beyond the Kitchen

The educational and developmental benefits of introducing gardening to young children have been well documented. However, because providers have many responsibilities, gardening lessons often receive limited attention and occur only one to two hours per month. Explore how food service providers within CACFP facilities can expand their kitchen roles to increase children's exposure to gardening.

  1. Understand the benefits of gardening for children two - five. 
  2. Identify what to grow in your garden using your CACFP knowledge. 
  3. Learn how to include food service staff in hands on activities with children.
