Our Mission

FEAST, a Program of Bountiful Cities, 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. So maybe if I start trying food during FEAST class, I will start to like more food.” - Aidan 4th grade Vance Elementary
"It is really easy to make fresh, healthy food on a low budget." - Mathew 7th grade Asheville Middle School
