Healthy Eating Program

Crossroads’ Healthy Eating Program brings culturally appropriate, farm-to-fork programming to students and parents at several Takoma Park elementary schools with diverse populations and high Free and Reduced Meals (FARMS) participation, as well as to shoppers at Crossroads Farmers Market. These fun and interactive sessions feature cooking lessons, food tastings, farmer visits to the classroom, and other hands-on activities.

For more information, please contact Michelle at mdudley@crossroadscommunityfoodnetwork.org.
