This project provided insight into an Edible Education Program. The value of nutrition for developing students was explored as a program option. The program’s main focus was to provide an outlet for students to learn about food within a school site garden. Alice Waters developed the program to transform public school cafeteria’s systems. The program had a curriculum and curated lessons that could be easily integrated into every school. This research examined the benefits of nutrition in human development with a focus on brain development. This research included a design for an Edible Education inspired cafeteria classroom for the Edible Education Foundation.
