On February 24, 2023, this unique annual event returns to Great Kids Farm! Small groups of students from several schools will engage in a full day of hands-on learning with Baltimore's chefs, advocates, entrepreneurs, and leaders in African-American food and foodways. Through workshops and a reverse panel, participants will explore foodways through the perspectives of land, culture, science, the arts, and more.
Organized by the Farm to School team of City Schools' Food & Nutrition Services department, this event is free for participants. Transportation and lunch are provided for all participating schools.
