The San Diego Chapter is creating a recipe for success by bringing the ingredients from local farms and chefs to classrooms. Students compare and contrast tastes and textures as well as develop understandings about different foods and basic nutrition principles that will remain with them into adulthood.
Days of Taste®, known as the signature program for AIWF, is an interactive program for fourth and fifth grade students that helps build a food and nutrition vocabulary. We pride ourselves on reaching out to thousands of children each year.
Some of the activities students have in the Days of Taste® include a tasting guided by a chef, a visit with a local farmer to discover the wealth and variety of products grown and that are available locally (such as the trip to Strawberry Fields in Carlsbad), or preparing a Harvest salad using fresh produce that the they have purchased themselves at their local Farmer’s Market.
If you would like more information on how you can support the Days of Taste® program and become involved, please contact Days of Taste Chairman Dr. Lee Jaret at email@example.com.
We’re not just nourishing our youth – we’re nurturing the AIWF members and leaders of tomorrow.
