Since 2012, Sugar Beet Schoolhouse has been inspiring people to grow, eat and share and learn about good food. Through unique programming we improve food literacy, community health and access to and appreciation for local and sustainable food.
In collaboration with strong community partnerships we are growing the Good Food Movement.


Sugar Beet Schoolhouse is moving the Good Movement forward with unique experiences that are getting people excited about local food. This programming is essential to building food literacy and changing the way we think about food in Chicagoland.
