"Educators who want to build a classroom food community do not need to be accomplished cooks nor expert gardeners. They simply need to be interested in using food as a way to connect learning to meaningful, real-world experience. Starting in September, The School Garden Doctor will post themed activities that include videos, suggested book titles, and tips for how to conduct tasting or cooking experiences for children."

Eat-Read-Talk-Write is a classroom-tested approach to that puts food at the center of literacy instruction to connect food literacy themes with Common Core State Standards for ELA/Literacy.
