Local Leaders Program
The Online Food Literacy Educator Training Program is designed to give educators, health counselors, physicians, and community leaders/activists the skills and support necessary to implement a Food Literacy Education Program that uses food literacy and cooking to connect youth to the topics of nutrition, health, and the environment.
