Francine Delany New School for Children
We began our FEAST programming at Francine Delany New School for Children in the spring of 2014. We now work with all students, Kindergarten through 8th grade. We have learned about all kinds of new foods, including lots of fresh vegetables. We have special gardens all over the FDNSC campus, including a Kinder –garden, a Folk Art Garden, a pollinator garden for Monarch Butterflies, and many other small plantings outside different classrooms. In 2018 we added an apple orchard thanks to a donation of apple trees from Noble Cider. The gardens are managed in collaboration with the school, families and community volutneers.
We are with the students once a week and are able to connect the food and gardening lessons back to the classroom. Our students are so excited each week for FEAST class and have opened their minds to tasting and trying new things.
