Food / Farming

City Market/Onion River Cooperative is a partner of the Burlington School Food Project along with Shelburne Farms' Sustainable Schools Project.  The Co-op's education and outreach director works with our staff to create both in-school and on-site programs to connect students to their food.  City Market has been a place of both teaching and learning for students across the K-12 spectrum including supporting fundraising for schools to purchase local fresh produce, working with students on cafeteria transformation such as taste-testing, and displaying student's informational posters on farming in Burlington.  They also provide in-class lessons on nutrition and healthy snacks and communityprograms for eating healthy on a budget
