What do teachers say about the program?

"My students really enjoyed and learned a lot from this lesson. The majority of my students had never made a burger on their own and had only eaten fast food burgers... This is a huge achievement for my students! Thank you." -Angela Turck, teacher at Fulton City School District

"This was a fantastic opportunity for our students. Four of my classes used the beef to make Beef and Barley Soup and two of my classes used the beef to make Confetti Tacos. I made a PowerPoint slideshow of all the students working hard on making the recipes! ...Thank you very much for your donation to our school!" - Katherine Hobaica, teacher at Waterville School District
