From the Garden to the Table (FGTT) was established in 1996 by Jeffrey Smith to reach vulnerable youth and their communities with crucial health education, skills, and opportunities. The program is devoted to organic, green, and sustainable practices and to working with low-income youth and their communities to improve their health and environment. Since its inception, FGTT has taken its eat and live green programs to youth, parents, and schools in San Jose, Sacramento, San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland.
The goal of FGTT is to be at the forefront of promoting the physical, mental, and spiritual/creative achievement and health of youth throughout the state. We accomplish this through teaching and growing a community of students, families, schools, and communities grounded in organic, green, sustainable, and healthier lifestyles.
