The Mobile Food Lab (MFL) is an entirely customized school bus outfitted as a brightly lit greenhouse, exhibit space, and lab space to teach kids about healthy eating; all within 300 square feet of moveable space. This “food truck” is bait for hooking students K-8 on science, art, and better eating habits. The experiential mobile classroom travels to underserved communities to teach kids that healthy food can be grown and enjoyed everywhere, and to explain how these plants nourish our minds and bodies. The MFL’s primary missions are to help children develop a healthy connection to food by harnessing their innate curiosity through a multisensory experience of smell, sight, touch, and taste. The MFL uses food as the medium to teach a curriculum of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM).
