We are dedicated to teaching kids about agriculture and where their food comes from. By doing this, we create a more educated workforce, some of which will go into the food industry and continue to feed America into the future.
Students will work in groups to research and develop a presentation about where their pizza ingredients come from. Classrooms will be provided a kit that includes materials about pork, dairy, beef, vegetables, and wheat. The program will run for four weeks.
