Social-Emotional Learning and Trauma-Informed Instruction in Edible Education

This grant will help Edible Schoolyard New York improve its education programming.

Edible Schoolyard New York (ESYNYC) partners with New York City public schools to provide students in 3K-8th grades with culturally relevant, hands-on cooking and gardening experiences that empower youth to make healthy food choices. ESYNYC aims to be a safe space for students to de-stress, re-focus, and build self-confidence, but the organization currently lacks the training and resources to foster social-emotional learning or implement trauma-informed instructional practices. With this grant, ESYNYC will identify best practices and frameworks for social-emotional learning and trauma-informed instruction, integrate this knowledge in lessons and curriculum, and train frontline staff to put it into practice.
