What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community Food Shares

In 2017 we provided 1,160 elementary students with monthly farm-to-school nutrition lessons, supplied 30 at-risk families with our organic produce, and started a 4-acre farm and farmstand. Our work strengthens and supports our local food systems, provides food security and affirms our local environment. In doing so, we celebrate the soil and soul of our community and nurture our own common roots.

Population(s) Served

This comprehensive program is delivered to all South Burlington School District elementary classrooms – over 900 students.

Students learn about how foods are grown and how food systems bring food to our tables. Our engaging curriculum is presented once a month by a trained Common Roots Educator.

Lessons nurture lifelong healthy eating habits, including encouraging healthy school lunch menu choices. Students experience the colors, tastes, and textures of a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and other food products including honey, maple syrup, and herbs.

Population(s) Served

Farm to Go is a partnership between Common Roots and Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School. Middle school students participating in Farm to Go join forces with our chef educators to learn how to prepare meals with local foods and seasonal vegetables. In each week of this six-week program, students prepare an entire meal to bring home and share with their families. This popular program fills up quickly, so register early! Our sessions are held September – May during the academic year.
