Common Threads Farm SNAP Ed Program

About Us

Common Threads has been connecting kids to healthy food in the garden, in the kitchen, and at the table since 2007. Our SNAP-Ed focus is on PSE work in schools, through gardening and cooking in the classroom. Over the past few years we have also included reimbursable meal programs for kids at low income apartment complexes and a rural community center.
