Come join EATS and be part of nurturing a generation of healthy eaters with rock-solid lifelong health and wellness habits. We have a variety of programs that are taking off in our schools and we need positive adult role models to help make these programs happen! Share your passion for healthy food, kids, and education by volunteering with EATS for one of the following programs:
Interested in helping students expand their palates? Studies show that children need 10-12 experiences with a new food before they choose it on their own.Join our Taste Test team and travel into the lunchroom to provide our students with samples of healthy food along with a few words of encouragement.
Do you believe that students should understand where their food comes from? Studies show that children who grow their own food are more likely to eat fruits and vegetables as an adult. Gardening also helps students learn valuable social and interpersonal skills that translate in and out of the classroom.Come get your hands dirty by volunteering to work at one of our schools’ gardens.
Do you believe that teaching students to cook provides skills that empower them to make healthy food choices for life? Cooking provides knowledge about and connection with food which translates to a generation of eaters with the skills to prepare healthy food.Put on an apron and join an after-school cooking class and give students the power to provide themselves with healthy choices for life by teaching them valuable cooking skills today.
