About The Food Literacy Project

Location:

9001 LIMEHOUSE LN, LOUISVILLE, KY 40222, US

Mission Statement

Youth transforming their communities through food, farming, and the land.

Description

Sharing its home with an 8-acre organic vegetable farm, the Food Literacy Project exists to reveal the power of discovering real food. Our comprehensive Field-to-Fork program consists of student farm-based education, youth development, afterschool programs, professional development, and community engagement to bring all people in the community closer to the origin of the food. We believe in a hands-on experiential approach to education, believing once youth become participants in their own food system, they are more likely to try new things and enjoy eating fresh fruits and vegetables.
