Truck Farms: Harvesting for the Future

Image File: 

Music time-lapse of the D.C. Central Kitchen’s Local Initiatives and Procurement Coordinator Joelle Johnson, The Campus Kitchens Project’s Matt Schnarr, Nutrition Out Reach Coordinator Lydia Mills and Web Content Coordinator/Designer Shannon Simmons, during Truck Farm planting day in Washington, D.C. on Friday, April 6, 2012. The Truck Farm is a D.C. Central Kitchen and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s People’s Garden Initiative partnership. Like other Truck Farms around the country, this trusty pick-up will travel around the city to schools and community sites, teaching children about healthy eating and where their food comes from through the garden display in its truck-bed. Along with other local donors, the People’s Garden Initiative supports this “edible exhibit” by providing seedlings and educational materials. (USDA Multimedia by Lance Cheung)
