Nonprofit - You Make a Difference
Welcome to E.A.T Foundation
What do we do?
We provide a 3-day, hands-on Summer Internship. This is a program that combines classroom instruction and hands-on, in-the-field experience immersing the participants in the vital world of agriculture.
We provide lodging with local farm families to enhance their personal exposure to farming and dairying, furthering a teacher’s understanding of the economic relationship between the local Ag economy, the state, the nation, and the world.
We develop and provide materials to be used in the classroom which incorporate agriculture into mainstream classroom activities. Each participant can receive 2 units of continuing college educational credits.
Why do we do this?
It is our belief that the issues facing our local agricultural based economy, such as water, air quality, unemployment, a skilled work force and the environment, are not simply local issues.
To truly educate people in the urban centers and locally, we must provide a hands-on experience and a chance to understand for themselves our concerns.
