Volunteering with the Nutrition Team
Here are some ways you can help!
We partner with schools and communities to provide garden-based education. This is an opportunity to experience fresh vegetables first hand – from seeding gardens to picking the produce – and is accompanied by classroom lessons and discussion. In the Central Sierra, the UC CalFresh program collaborates with local volunteers, UCCE master gardeners, and 4-H to extend garden-based learning efforts and create youth leadership and engagement opportunities.
Healthy activity is integrate in all counties by UC CalFresh trained PA Leads. Visual and hardscape reinforcements such as stencils and murals create an environment that promotes movement and play. UC CalFresh partners with Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) Global Foundation, Fuel Up to Play 60 and others to provide resources in schools, build capacity, and explore ways youth can have the greatest opportunity to be physically active in educational settings.
