Backyard Bites success relies on you!!! Come help chop veggies, fill snack cups and deliver snacks. We have separated volunteer opportunities by grade to give families a chance to hang out and prepare a healthy treat for their class together, and this month the fourth graders are up! Please use the sign up below to get involved.
This year marks the 3rd annual Backyard Bites Program at Van Hise Elementary School. Modeled on Farm to School and Homegrown Snack Programs around the country and region, our goal is to provide a healthy snack, created from locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, dairy products and grains to all 400 plus students once each month. In addition to raising awareness of what foods are grown in Wisconsin, we also hope to introduce students to foods they may not have tried before.
