Mission Statement

Green Plate Special inspires and empowers youth to experience food in new ways through gardening, cooking, and eating together.

Description

We offer after-school, field trip and holiday-camp programs for 4th through 8th graders. We teach young people how to grow, tend, harvest, and cook healthy foods. Youth learn safety and sanitation, knife skills, nutrition, and environmentally responsible food growing and sourcing practices. Our curriculum-based programs often involve science, math, history, and culture; past programs have focused on topics such as Washington State History, and Ancient Egypt.

We partner with middle schools, community groups, and youth serving organizations to provide gardening and cooking education to low-income youth. Programming instruction is led by Executive Director Laura Dewell, with support from volunteers who are all cooks, skilled gardeners and educators.
