About Green Beetz

Green Beetz

Green Beetz provides teachers with a ready-to-teach curriculum that encourages students to think holistically about the modern food system. Through innovative video and hands-on activities, students learn about how their food choices matter -- not just for the health of their bodies, but also for the health of the planet. The curriculum is STEM-based and Next Generation-aligned so that teachers can seamlessly integrate it into their classroom scope and sequence.

The Green Beetz curriculum is designed for 4th-7th graders and is taught predominantly in underserved and low-income schools. We currently reach 3,200 students in 140 classrooms across NYC's five boroughs. The curriculum is cost-free. We deeply value health equity and work closely with community partners and stakeholders across all five boroughs to ensure our program reaches those most in need.

Green Beetz Direct

With so many students now distance-learning, we created Green Beetz Direct: a digital, “bite-sized” version of our STEM-based curriculum. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for students and teachers to access food education, from wherever they are!
