Good Foods Garden
UC Davis Nutrition Department
Welcome to the garden! Team Davis Good Foods Garden is a program catered toward those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). We create and teach nutrition curriculum to the participants so that they can apply their newly acquired knowledge to build a healthier lifestyle.
Good Foods Garden is a collaboration between UC Davis Nutrition Department and Team Davis and provides service-learning opportunities for UC Davis nutrition students.
The Team Davis Good Foods Garden program is a community-based service-learning internship linking UC Davis nutrition students with Team Davis participants. The internship aims to provide students with the opportunity to present hands-on nutrition education to Team Davis participants with developmental, intellectual and/or physical disabilities. Through the development and delivery of educational materials and lessons in various subject areas, including nutrition, health, food safety, culinary skills, and gardening/agriculture, the program promotes positive health behavior changes.
