About This project
The Florida Heritage Foods Project is a community service-based pedagogical initiative centered on the historical, cultural, nutritional, and culinary value of crops that are significant to Florida’s multicultural history. Through the lens of food, this project-based teaching approach empowers students to take a proactive role in interpreting Florida history and promoting a more sustainable food system in their community. Instructional tools designed and developed by an interdisciplinary team of community college faculty and staff engage students in topics and issues related to local food security, public service, and multiculturalism in the classroom and beyond.
