Science – A Recipe For Health

Veggie IQ aims to excite students to become Community Youth Scientists. Youth Scientists use science and technology to discover the important links between good food and good physical and mental well-being while helping to end the health inequalities faced by many young people in America today.

Our 2021 inaugural Veggie IQ program for Santa Barbara area high school students was such a success that we have secured funding to expand the program. In Spring 2022, Veggie IQ expanded into schools grade K-8, reaching over 300 students. In Summer 2022: Veggie IQ implemented two high school programs in Santa Barbara and Lompoc for local high school students. In Fall 2022, Veggie IQ continues to expand across K-12, providing education to students and improving health outcomes in our communities.
