I realize that there are past recommendations but the recommendations are from '98 and '99, and the recommenders weren't sure whether the food was organic or not. I think I have seen recommendations for preschools that serve organic food in more recent newsletters but I didn't take note of them at the time because I thought that they would end up being appended to the old recommendations but that hasn't happened yet. So, I am hoping parents would be willing to readdress the question of whether there are preschools serving organic food and if so, which ones are they? Thanks so much, Nancy
I think that Kinderfarm (in Berkeley) serves organic food. I know that they do a lot of cooking of their own food, including baking bread. L.
Our family daycare/preschool has gone totally organic. There's some sort of government subsidy to daycare places that helps defray the cost of food and our daycare providers are using that extra bit to buy organic. Basically they're taking that money out of their own pockets as our costs haven't increased. They also have a huge organic garden which the kids all help out in which provides some of their food. We couldn't be happier with this switch. I would bet a little organized encouragement on the part of parents (and maybe a little extra money) would ensure that all kids get organic snacks at school.
