Organic School Project

August 21, 2007  • 

The Organic School Project (OSP) seeks to help school-age children become more mindful eaters, one school at a time.

Imagine students sitting down to a school lunch. Not just any lunch – but a meal students have a hand in planning and preparing, full of fresh fruits and vegetables that they even helped grow. Imagine students more connected to the food they eat, and making informed choices about what goes on their plate.

OSP is a nonprofit organization that is currently making this a reality in three Chicago-area schools. Visit their website to learn more about how they are integrating hands-on gardening with a food-related curriculum and into school lunch menus.
