Eat Your Vegetables!
On the GRUB Farm we grow awesome vegetables. The majority of the growing season labor is provided by teens in the GRUB Program. One day the staff realized that the teens were not eating the vegetables they were growing. When asked why they weren't taking advantage of the availability of the beautiful vegetables, most of them told us the didn't like vegetables. We knew we had to change that!
Giving the GRUB teens the opportunity to prepare delicious recipes using our fresh GRUB produce was the catalyst for change. I am proud to report - The GRUB teens are eating their vegetables!
