Opportunity to get involved:

Please join Slow Food South Bay and GoingEvergreen “Curriculum Committee” as we create a hands-on curriculum delivered to children grades K to 6 via a one-hour session once a week and delivered to children enrolled at YMCA after school programs. These programs are delivered at elementary school sites so it is an opportunity to create a beachhead and reach local communities.

Our first meeting will be: Friday, May 21st, 5 – 6:30pm, at a private home in Cupertino.

Projected completion is late summer, 2014.

This is a collaboration between Slow Food South Bay, the Silicon Valley chapter of Slow Food USA and GoingEvergreen, a Silicon Valley-based nonprofit promoting green energy and sustainability.
