Through a recent merger with the Bubble Foundation, Edible Schoolyard NYC now implements Bubble’s edible education programming in Bubble’s 16 schools citywide. Over the next year, we will work with staff, board, and other stakeholders to determine the best way to fully integrate these schools into our organization.
The merger, which is perfectly aligned with the goals of Edible Schoolyard NYC’s new strategic plan, is an opportunity to consolidate the two organizations’ efforts, increase our footprint, and become a model for collaboration, not only in the nutrition education space, but in the nonprofit sector as a whole. By combining Bubble’s proven curriculum and network of schools with Edible Schoolyard NYC’s in-depth service model, data-driven approach, and resources, more students will receive meaningful nutrition and wellness education.
