FRESH ON DECK
Where we educate and empower food-insecure children in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, and academics.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The first wealth is health."
Fresh on Deck nutrition education classes allow students to participate in hands-on activities to learn about food, food systems, nutrition, physical activity and brain development.
One Hour Sessions
These classes have a STEM focus and help students understand the importance of using food as fuel so they can achieve their dreams, whether that be an athlete, scholar or otherwise.
Research shows an association between food-insecurity and delayed development in young children; increased risk of chronic illnesses; and behavioral problems like hyperactivity, anxiety and aggression in school-age children.
Food-insecurity is a social determinant that has a profound negative effect on health and education.
Food-insecurity affects concentration, memory, mood, and motor skills, all of which a child needs to achieve academic success.
