Truck Farm

Benning (Dorothy I. Height) Library

2:30 p.m.
The Truck Farm is a traveling, edible exhibit that allows D.C.’s urban youth to really “dig in” to the source of the food that fuels their growing bodies and minds. In partnership with the  United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) People’s Garden, DC Central Kitchen’s Truck Farm visits youth agencies and schools to deliver interactive and educational lessons about the benefits of nutritious produce. Join us to learn about yummy plants and see how they can be used.  Each session will include a tasting! Open to children ages 6-18.
