Toomer Elementary Farm To Market

On October 20, 2010 we hosted our 3 Farm to Market event at Toomer Elementary. All 225 students rotated through 5 different stations highlighting the themes related to the well being of all of our students.  The booths focused on nutrition, exercise, community, environment, and achievement, this event fully supports our mission to inspire life long healthy habits in the children we serve.

The Toomer field was transformed into a farm like atmosphere, featuring booths that promote locally- grown foods with a tasting of  pumpkin pudding from Chef Praylani, a petting zoo featuring goats from Sun Dog Farms, nutritional talk ,rap and exercise with Mother Hen and Chickin Feed, students will interact with worms and learn the ends and out of composting. One of the booths focuses on all of Sodexo’s Well Being themes. It was with Robby Astrove, formerly of Trees Atlanta, lead the students in planting 6 fruit trees and 10 blueberry bushes that they will be able to harvest from as soon as next year. Thanks so much to all of the Sodexo- Jackmont employees and community partners who made this event a success.
