Recipes for Success Contest Winner Announcement

Thank you to Farm to Institution New England for recognizing the hard work of the Somerville Family Learning Collaborative (SFLC)! In collaboration with the Somerville Farm to School Project, the SFLC held Literacy Pop-Up Events at 8 Somerville schools in June 2014 that were attended by over 500 families. The events provided parents with creative ways to teach reading skills through the lens of food, from taste tests to grocery store scavenger hunts to food diaries and more. Thank you to the SFLC for their amazing work!

The following is a repost from the Farm to Institute New England:
