The toolkit can only reach its full potential if its effects are felt within the community. To begin with, our work encourages children to manage a school garden, to improve their access to nutritious foods. The behavioural changes brought about in schools can then have a ripple effect through the larger social sphere. To support what is taught in schools, Nourishing Schools works with farming groups to encourage the cultivation of nutritious foods by linking them to increased incomes. This is combined with efforts to encourage their consumption such as by sharing local recipes and home remedies. This builds both the supply and the demand for nutritious foods.
