Truck Farm Chicago is a mini-farm planted in the back of a pick-up truck. The biodiesel-powered farm-on-wheels is an edible exhibit used to connect kids to food and health. We conduct school programming (from elementary school through University) so students understand what they eat makes a difference- for the performance of their bodies, but also for the health of the air, water, soil and communities they live.
Our goal is to inspire and motivate kids to work towards a better food system- starting in their homes, on their blocks, in the schools and around the world. We aim to be part of the movement that helps nourish the world, while creating more community and enriching the rest of nature.
Truck Farm Chicago is a Green Sugar Press project, in collaboration with 501(c)(3) Seven Generations Ahead (and their Fresh-from-the-Farm curriculum). We’re volunteer-run and collaborate with partners and friends like We Farm America and The Kids’ Table. The Truck Farm concept originated with the Wicked Delicate crew in New York and the Truck Farm Fleet is nationwide.
