Carrots in the Classroom

The Davis Food Co-op provides Davis public schools with free classroom visits.

The Co-op instructor cooks up delicious corn cakes for the kids.

For elementary classes, we offer several different Carrots in the Classroom sessions. We provide all the supplies needed, a 5-minute presentation on cooperatives, and an interactive lesson in cooking, yoga, or storytelling.

For Junior High & High School students, we offer a nutrition presentation (with reinforcing snacks) and a lively question and answer period.

We're also happy to visit any preschool in Davis for a presentation to kids (usually smelling and tasting produce) or adults (a presentation on feeding kids, again with reinforcing snacks).

Store tours are available on request for any group.

Davis teachers may email Julie Cross or call (530) 758-2667 ext. 139 to book a visit for any or all of our programs.
