Enhancing the Education of Trumansburg Students
 

Why I am a Champion for this Cause

The Food is Elementary programs has ¬†been operating in Trumansburg schools for many years, funded primarily through private grants. Our children have been the benefactors of this incredibly essential program and as a result, are making healthier food choices. Not only are they eating a more diverse group of foods, but they are learning how to grow what they eat in the garden that the program established on the school grounds. Nutrition education is just as essential as physical education. Most people don’t understand that exercise alone does not prevent weight gain and the diseases associated with obesity. If we can introduce new and healthier food choices into cildren’s regular diets, through a program that makes theses new foods exciting and fun, hopefully those children will begin to form good eating habits early in their lives.
