The 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 2011, in 15 schools, the program produced:
- 24 different produce items totaling 1,135 pounds of produce
- $1,249 paid to gardens
