Eat What You Grow: CPS Food Safety Training – Tuesday, June 11

Join the CPS Office of Student Health and Wellness for the next Eat What You Grow Training on June 11, 2019 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m at Waters Elementary, 4540 N Campbell Ave. This is a workshop for CPS teachers and staff who would like their school to be certified to serve students produce that is grown in their school garden.┬áThe Eat What You Grow program covers key aspects of food safety so schools can take students on the full journey from seed to salad!

Once a CPS employed representative from your school has attended the training, you will complete a Personalized Food Safety Plan submitted via Google Form to Harold Chapman, the School Garden Specialist for the CPS Office of Student Health and Wellness. The whole process will be outlined in this workshop and participants will leave with the resources and knowledge to eat what you grow this spring. Big Green Garden Educators are trained and able to support every step of the process from Garden to Cafeteria.

All garden leads are encouraged to attend. This is a great opportunity to ask questions, share stories and get a refresher on the EWYG framework.

There is no cost for attending and registration is limited to 40 participants (first come, first serve). CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

We hope to see you there!
