The Fantastic Foodies are just one part of the Let's Eat NY: A Farm-School-Grocery Partnership project; a partnership between Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County, Broome-Tioga BOCES Rock on Cafe, Wegmans and UHS with advertising support from RVSA Advertising. The project looks to increase the consumption of NYS fruits and vegetables through a marketing and merchandising campaign as well as educational skits given at elementary and middle schools throughout the two counties.
The Fantastic Foodies is a group of seven kids, ages 8-13 years old, who are on a mission to encourage their peers to eat local and healthy! They will be completing missions throughout the summer learning more about local, NYS, fruits and vegetables, learning how to prepare them into healthy snacks, visiting a farmers market and more! Let's meet the Fantastic Foodies!
You can follow them on Youtube to watch all the other videos.
