Back to School, Back to the Farmers Market!

Every kid deserves opportunities to grow and be healthy. With students back in the classroom for in-person learning this fall, we need your support to bring back experiential food education for eaters of all ages. Donate now.

As schools closed and classes moved online during the pandemic, CUESA’s farmers markets have been a vital hub of food access, connection, and joy in a time of social isolation. Through our Foodwise Kids and Foodwise Teens education programs, students learn to cook and grow their own food, engage with their community and each other, and develop valuable life and job skills. We’re working to welcome students back this fall with hands-on food education, both in the classroom and at the farmers market, and we need your help! Together, we can invest in a sustainable and equitable food future for all.

Empower the next generation of healthy eaters by supporting CUESA's education programs today. Help us reach our $40,000 goal to bring students Back to School, Back to the Farmers Market! Donate now.
