The FLP includes a culinary lab field trip destination center, conducts school-wide cafeteria tastings, and delivers in-class cooking demonstrations with take home meal kits utilizing local foods and school garden-grown produce. The FLP ignites curiosity and empowers students and their communities to cultivate positive change and encourages a healthy future. Follow the FLP on Facebook and Instagram.
