About Urban Harvest 

Slow Food NYC's Urban Harvest program teaches New York City children about the effects of good food on their health and well-being, the health of their communities, and the health of the planet.

The program supports hands-on educational programs that give children a comprehensive understanding of what good food is: where it comes from; how it is produced; how it is distributed; how healthy it is for them; and, of course, how good it tastes.

 By addressing these issues in structured learning environments not only will children be exposed to healthy foods, they will also be inspired to share what they know with their families, friends, and community.

Urban Harvest consists of two components: Urban Harvest in Schools, operating at schools during the academic year (September through June), and Urban Harvest Gardens, operating during the summer months.
