THE STORY:

The Food Systems Project is a school-garden based nutrition education program that partners with four elementary schools in Lansing, MI to provide nutrition education to over 1,000 students ages 5-12 each year. We offer free nutrition education classes in over 50 classrooms as well as a weekly after school nutrition education program and a two week summer garden camp program.

We are part of a non-profit organization and our program is grant funded, however, our funding source does not pay for the costs of creating, maintaining and keeping our school gardens growing. All garden beautification projects and garden maintenance must be done with volunteer hours or donations.

We recently built a beautiful new school garden at Sheridan Road Middle School, our newest partner school, and the kids are so excited to get involved and help their garden grow! We are reaching out and asking for donations to help us cover the costs of items such as garden tools, paint, seeds and plants to make this school garden an incredibly special place for our students to grow and learn.

The students, teachers, community and program staff sincerely appreciate any consideration in supporting this crucial community program that works to improve the health and quality of life in the Lansing area.
