Building Community from the Inside Out


Children at Garden Pathways Downtown Education Center are served nutritious meals and snacks based on the Child and Adult Care Food Program.  For more information on CACFP, visit  We encourage children to try all of the foods.

Sometimes, a new food has to be offered ten times before a child will eat it.  We believe that food is never to be used as either punishment or reward.  It is fuel for our bodies to keep us healthy and strong.  Additionally, children are offered opportunities for gross motor play and plenty of water to drink daily.  Learn more at
