Garden to Plate - Raw Food Cooking Classes Begin!

On October 9, AAUF began our Garden to Plate sessions with 10 youth participating in an alternative sentencing program.

The sessions are held on Saturdays from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at 2229 and 2231 N. Broad Street.

Garden to Plate is a project of AAUF's Urban Garden Initiative which was created to increase green space and green jobs in disenfranchised communities, promote growing produce in urban gardens and increase access to fresh food in low income and communities of color.

Garden to Plate includes providing information to youth about making healthy meal choices, preparing raw food recipes and information on linking good nutrition to healthy outcomes.

Registration is required to participate in Garden to Plate sessions.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please call our office at 215-454-2583.
