Areas of Focus
Education initiatives are the cornerstone of EATS' mission because, with knowledge, individuals become empowered. The success of EATS' dedication to educating children and their families is evidenced by the popularity of its classes and camps and the positive feedback in attendee testimonials.
Food security initiatives deliver essential meal services to qualifying community members, addressing their basic needs above all else. In cooperation with local partners, recipients of donated meals and other forms of food support are provided healthier ingredients and learn about balanced meals and nutritional guidelines.
Sustainability initiatives teach the next generation new habits that can affect positive change for the environment such as composting, regenerative agriculture, and mindful dietary modifications. Education is primarily delivered in cooperation with the school district to accelerate the outreach efforts.
Advocacy initiatives focus on forming partnerships and acquiring resources to promote and support local farming, generate improved access to markets, and educate youth. Partners include state and local organizations that can assist EATS with increasing its community presence and becoming a voice for its communal needs and underrepresented citizens.
