Our Mission

FEAST empowers youth and families to grow, prepare and enjoy fruits and vegetables through hands on cooking and garden education.

Student Testimonials

“ I know these vegetables would taste really good if I liked all of these things. And I’ve realized that my taste buds need to taste things like ten times before I start to like them.

"It is really easy to make fresh, healthy food on a low budget." - Mathew 7th grade Asheville Middle School
