At Turning Green, we work at the elementary, high school, and college level to provide students with the education, advocacy skills and leadership opportunities to take action in support of a more responsible economy, a healthy food system, and mobilize others to do the same. We aim to Inform today’s youth to reshape habits, actions, and consumption pattern, empower them to be advocates for change in their homes, schools and communities and mobilize our leaders of the future, uniting them with diverse stakeholders and mentors .

Each year we select and engage a powerful and committed group of young leaders to mentor and empower, to be the change they wish to see in the world. This program is year round and is funded through grants and donations.
the conscious kitchen: to shift the paradigm around school food service
CK cultivates a local, ecological food system while building nutrition literacy into school meals. Staff works with schools and school districts to transition food service from pre-packaged, processed, heat-and-serve to chef-cooked meals, prepared in on-site, zero waste kitchens, based on five foundational attributes; fresh, local, organic, seasonal, non-GMO.
