If you’re already thinking about next season’s garden, here’s news from New Hampshire Farm to School about a campaign to get kids involved — Root 4 Kids!
New Hampshire Farm to School is proud to support Root 4 Kids, a new campaign from Annie’s that calls on parents and teachers nationwide to help one million kids dig and plant new veggies harvest 2010 through harvest 2011.
Get involved with the Root 4 Kids movement by taking the pledge at Root4Kids.com. By declaring “I Root 4 Kids,” you’ll commit to helping at least one kid learn about, eat and plant new veggies, or work to get more fresh foods into schools.
Annie’s will award the school with the most Root 4 Kids pledges by December 31, 2010 with their choice of a garden, a new Farm to School program or gardening supplies for one year. In addition, for every 1,000 Root 4 Kids pledges Annie’s receives, it will contribute funds toward a garden or Farm to School program in an underprivileged school.
Join NH Farm to School and Annie’s in helping one million kids dig real food!
