Edible Social Studies
EDIBLE SOCIAL STUDIES
Every Harvey Milk student will visit both the kitchen and garden classrooms as part of a 12- or 14-week unit over the course of the school year. We will spend time exploring the roots of human society and making sense of modern civilization through the lens of food.
Edible Social Studies is designed to engage kids and help them make a personal connection to the arc of human history and culture. Through food, students have the opportunity to tell their own stories and to hear the stories of others. They learn about the many differences between groups of people and about our enduring commonality as human beings.
