Students from 15 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will be growing vegetables in the classroom this spring.

pizzas at a Fuel Pizza location with their own ingredients in Dec. 2012.
Through the "Field to Fork" program (partners: Fuel Pizza Cafe, Mecklenburg Co. Health Department, Mecklenburg Co. Fruit & Vegetable Coalition, CMS and LandSculptors, LLC), kids will learn about nutrition and grow garden vegetables at their school.
They'll pick their produce after several weeks and take it to a Fuel Pizza location, where their ingredients will be chopped up. Then the students will make (and eat!) vegetable-laden pizzas of their own creation.
The elementary schools participating this spring:
