Local Leaders Program

Train with us.

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.  While the curriculum has been designed for youth ages 12-18, the open-platform design of the program allows it to be successfully adapted to both younger and older audiences.


The Online Food Literacy Educator Training Program is based on an experiential education curriculum that centers around 7 different modules with associated learning areas that support US National Learning Standards.

These modules include:

Individuals are encouraged to apply to this truly unique program that will connect you to an international network of like-minded leaders working in their communities to create change at the local level.
