Garden to Cafeteria

School Gardens 2The Garden To Cafeteria (GTC) program teaches students how to grow and harvest food safely to be used in the school cafeterias on the salad bars. Using food safety protocols developed with Denver County Health Department, students sell fresh produce from the school gardens to the school kitchens with proceeds supporting the sustainability of the school gardens.

In 2012, in 14 schools, the program produced:

  • 24 different produce items totaling 1,122pounds of produce
  • $979 paid to gardens
