Ensuring the next generation of Louisianans knows where their food comes from, BREADA coordinates youth programming at its farmer's markets, as well as a Farm to School program currently taking place in six Baton Rouge area public schools. The Farm to School program brings a live farmers market experience to each campus as well as cooking demos that show kids how to transform fresh produce into new dishes.


"The classes helped to change my mind about certain foods, like shiitake mushrooms and Brussels sprouts. They're not gross-they're delicious. I think I wanted to try these things at school rather than at home because I saw where the vegetables came from and got to chop them up."

Felix, 3rd Grader at WHAM
