For the first time, crops grown in the schools’ food forest are going on the menu. Farm-to-table dining has come to Miami-Dade school lunches.

Culinary students from 25 high schools across Miami-Dade County prepared dishes for a table of judges and a few hundred guests to raise money and awareness for their schools’ culinary programs at The Education Fund’s A Taste of Education event.

The Education Fund edible garden program seeks to get kids, teachers and cafeteria staff excited about growing their own food. The all-inclusive initiative takes it a step further by sending a team leader to work with teachers and kids throughout the year.
