Food education is the most powerful way to affect positive change in kids' lives.
Developing a hands-on relationship with food builds an essential skill set that kids will take with them into adulthood having a profound impact on their health and wellness for years to come.
As food related disease continues to gain a stronger grasp on our youngest generation, don't you think it's time to make a change? Don't kids deserve to be armed with the knowledge and skills to break the cycle?
We certainly think so.

How we do it...
Our interactive Labs allow kids to manage the food production process from "Lab to Table".
Growing food from seed expands their understanding of core academic concepts, fosters a deeper understanding of the food production process, and helps kids hone the skills to transform what they've grown into nourishing meals.
The Edible Learning Lab is an excellent venue for teaching patience and teamwork where kids discover self-confidence and learn about nutrition, ecology, conservation, math, biology, chemistry, and more.

The buzz on the street…
The Edible Learning Lab is one of my favorite programming decisions. Best revenue stream for an after-school program I have ever seen – It truly allows an organization to diversify their funding in the midst of learning quality life skills. It is amazing.

I was surprised at the level of sophistication for something like this. But yet it's rather simple. Kids can get this! For a teacher to get something like this off the ground it would take a lot of time, energy and resources but Modern Steader already has this all established. So it really just takes that next step to bring it into the schools.

The Edible Learning Lab has been an amazing addition to our programming. A large portion of what is grown in the Edible Learning Lab is sold to local restaurants and the general public. This Lab has become a key ingredient to our Club, directly responsible for a 15% increase in members in just the first 6 months.

A few words from some parents…
This is a great program for our youth, to educate them about healthy eating and how to grow plants.

The Lab has a very good impact on my daughter because it sparks her interest to learn. Every child should get the opportunity to learn this way.

I loved how engaged my kids were from the beginning. They retain what they've learned and look forward to class each week.
