Growing food Literacy Project (GFL) 


The Growing Food Literacy Project (GFL) is a collaboration of UCLA faculty and students with the Seeds to Plate Program at Mark Twain Middle School. UCLA students teach middle schoolers about "food literacy" - understanding the impact of food choices on one's health, the environment and the economy. Together, UCLA students and our students develop a healthy food culture at Mark Twain. 

student Internship program

Each quarter, we provide training to a handful of UCLA students from the fields of Public Health, Food Studies, Service Learning, and other community service interested individuals. Students are immersed in our program: involved in building curriculum, teaching, supporting garden activities, and providing overall support to the Seeds to Plate team. 

This is a great opportunity for students to get a taste of community work, learn about gardening and food, and become stronger leaders.
