FoodWhat?! Farm Stand: Sharing Affordable Organic Produce with the Community!

Have you heard about the FoodWhat?! farm stand? Well trust me, you're going to want to check this out. For the past month, the FoodWhat crew has set up shop at Bay View Elementary to sell produce to the community. This farm stand makes organic fruits and vegetables accessible to families at an affordable cost. Thanks to a grant we received, we are able to sell our organic produce at a reduced price so that parents can really stock up on nutritious food for their families!

The farm stand allows the FoodWhat crew to practice their customer service skills. At the farm stand they greet customers, tell them about the produce, and handle money. The crew has learned what professionalism looks like: big smiles, ready for action, full attention on the customer, and managing money during sales. So far the crew has put on impressive farm stands. They are comfortable with customers, super friendly, and are pretty darn good at
math : )

Keep an eye out for the FoodWhat farm stand at Gault Elementary for the month of September! We will be selling produce at Gault every Wednesday!
