Project Description


Sunrise Project utilizes children’s natural curiosity about food as a vehicle to enhance their health, build community and strengthen their relationship to the local food system through hands-on cooking and growing experiences. Our elementary program is focused on youth ages 5-12 and includes hands-on cooking and gardening using an organic, youth-driven curriculum.

Currently, we are setting up cooking and food-related activities during the school day at Cordley, New York and Prairie Park Elementary Schools, who also partner with us on a vermicomposting grant.

We will continue piloting cooking and gardening experiences at other Lawrence schools in the future.
