Food as a platform for learning and leading

Good School Food is a hands-on food education model that connects students to food, farming, and the culinary arts through standards-based, cross-curricular lessons during the school day. Every Good School Food lesson and field trip aligns with the Alabama Course of Study.

During School

Instructors collaborate with teachers at every grade level to design lessons to complement and expand what students are learning in the classroom. We teach across all subject areas, including science, math, social studies, English language arts, health, and art.

After School

Through our STEM/standards-based after-school programs, students grow, harvest, cook, and sell the produce from their school’s Teaching Farm.

Good School Food Mobile App

Bring Jones Valley Teaching Farm from the classroom to your home! We have free resources, recipes, activities and more available to everyone through our Good School Food Mobile App. You and your student can enjoy a dynamic virtual experience with interactive videos featuring JVTF instructors and standards-based lessons and activities for K-8 students.
