Farm to Go
Farm to Go is a partnership between Common Roots and Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School. Middle school students participating in Farm to Go join forces with our chef educators to learn how to prepare meals with local foods and seasonal vegetables. In each week of this six-week program, students prepare an entire meal to bring home and share with their families. This popular program fills up quickly, so register early! Our sessions are held September – May during the academic year.
What are the goals of the Farm to Go program?
Farm to Go has five main goals:
- Expand palates
- Introduce cooking techniques and recipe reading
- Provide an understanding of local agriculture
- Encourage healthy eating habits
- Support students in bringing home freshly prepared foods each week to enjoy with their families
