  • Farm to Table Program

    Featured on the Bright Horizons National Facebook Page!

    Our Farm to Table Program was featured on the Bright Horizons National Facebook Page in June! Take a peek to learn more about the exciting growing minds at our center through this exciting program!

    Bright Horizons at the American Center hosted 50 attendees of the National Farm to Cafeteria Conference to share ideas about farm-to-table eating, gardening, and to take a tour of the center.

    Our Chef's insights combined with the brief botany lesson, and a refreshing stroll through the center’s gardens, were meant to share ideas on horticultural and farm-to-table eating in hopes that these seeds of knowledge will sprout in other school cafeterias.
