We serve: SETTING THE TABLE: FROM FIELD TO PLATE
Setting the Table: From Field to Plate - Educating and empowering our youth to make informed choices about food and to advocate effectively for just, environmentally and agriculturally sound practices - in their lives, their community, and the wider world.

Justice, the pleasures of eating, health, environment, and fellowship intersect around food in fascinating ways for teens. On 8 Sunday afternoons Susan Youmans, Roger Nelson and Tim Severyn offer year 3 of service learning that gives participants fun, healthier eating choices, while empowering hands-on learning.
On alternate Sundays the teens take field trips and cook in Parish of the Epiphany's kitchen. They visit rural and urban farms, grocery stores and food pantries; learn about, prepare and donate healthy food; and meet adults who care passionately about raising and preparing healthy food and addressing hunger.
The program skips holiday Sundays as well as weekends before and after school vacations and 3 day weekends. Register by contacting parish leader, Susan Youmans @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-721-4021. Fee is $200. Cooking sessions take place at the Parish of the Epiphany's kitchen, and field trips leave from 70 Church Street. New England Grassroots Environmental Fund is our fiscal agent. Opportunities exist for interested adults to volunteer.
Accompany us on two journeys from field to plate - suburban and urban - to learn where food travels on its way from local and distant fields to plates. Playing with your food has never been so much fun !
