Health Foundation of South Florida has awarded a $200,000 grant over two years to The Education Fund (EducationFund.org) to expand its Food Forests for Schools (FFS) initiative in public elementary schools in Miami-Dade County.

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.
