For all of July, Nuba in Gastown is participating in EAT. GIVE. GROW.—a fundraising campaign to promote and support Growing Chefs. Growing Chefs' mission is to teach children, families, and the community about healthy food and healthy food systems. For every feature menu item you order at Nuba, one dollar will go directly to funding their Classroom Gardening Program, which takes place in 43 classrooms, and gets kids excited about growing, cooking, and eating healthy food. Over 140 volunteer chefs engage the students with games, lessons, and activities focusing on plant growth, local and urban agriculture, sustainability, and nutrition. The students even get to grow and harvest their own vegetables, which chefs then show them how to cook delicious, healthy meals with. So come on out to Nuba in Gastown to EAT while helping support EAT. GIVE. GROW.
