The CalFresh Healthy Living, UCCE program in Santa Clara County has begun our 2023-2024 school year programming! Local produce tastings where students can vote on how they liked the produce item has begun in 4 school districts across the county. Nutrition, gardening, and cooking curriculum is being implemented in various elementary and middle schools. Inclusive physical activity opportunities are also taking place in preschools. Educators are working hard to train elementary and middle school afterschool program leaders in inclusive physical activity curriculum as well.

We are excited to see what this school year has in store!
