Measuring Our Impact

We partner with the Columbia University Institute of Human Nutrition to collect impact evaluation data in the form of pre- and post-program surveys. The surveys capture change in students knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors related to food and the environment.

What our Students and Teachers are saying
about Green Beetz:

My favorite lesson is when we learned about the commercials and the tricks they play on you.
— Nathaniel, PS 183
I feel like before Green Beetz I wouldn’t try these cool healthy foods so I’m happy that I did. Now I like them! I even told my family about it so they can try it too.
— Dayiah, 5th Grader, PS 160
You learn about the food system, and industrial farming. You’re not eating blindly.
— Matthew, 5th Grader, PS 163
Through Green Beetz curriculum, scholars were given the opportunity to try new foods, engage in games, and experience memorable field trips that will shape them into better food citizens. Not only will this impact their personal lives, but can also impact their families and communities.
— Ms. Gonzalez, 5th Grade Teacher PS 160
I have not seen my students as engaged about science as they are with Green Beetz. Between the videos, the snacks and the lessons, they loved every minute of it and begged us to teach it even when it was not Green Beetz time. I cannot wait to teach it next year! Thank you for making a program that is fundamentally necessary as well as engaging.
— Ms. Senft, 5th Grade Teacher, PS 183
