Giving Back

We love to work in our community. Changing the way we teach children to think about nutrition will change the future. If we give children the proper tools to make informative decisions with their food choices, the world can become a happier and healthier place for all of us.

How does Inspire Me Wellness make it special?

• The first four days local farmers join us in the cafeteria to talk about what they grow, how they grow it, and offer tastings to all the students.
• On day five the local farmers join us for a “Farmers Market” at the school and bring truckloads of fresh produce to sell.
• Examples of products sold include spinach, kale, pumpkins, apples, squash, homemade organic breads and muffins, homemade soups, local grass fed beef, pastured chickens and eggs, flowers, locally roasted coffee, and much more.
• A meal prepared with ALL LOCAL INGREDIENTS is served to over 400 children and parents.
• The students and their families enjoy eating outside, picnic style and purchasing all the delicious local goods.
