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, recycling, storytelling, or farming.

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.

To book a visit for any or all of our programs, simply email Julie Cross
