Lisa’s Organics, a California based producer of organic, frozen vegetables in “Chef Inspired” sauces, will launch Gardens-to-Hospitals on May 22 at Sutter Amador Hospital as part of their “Eat Your Veggies” campaign. Science students at Argonaut High School will take what they have learned in their school garden and lead an event with students from Amador First Five School. The event is open to all 4- to 7-year-olds in the community. They will taste garden fresh produce, learn fun food facts and participate in collaborative garden activities. Kelsi Himmel, Argonaut Science Department Chair said: “Nothing is more valuable to my students and I than to be able to have these types of hands-on experiences. Kim Vagt, Director of Food and Nutrition Services at Sutter Amador Hospital said: “Our pledge to serve nutritious meals to our patients plays an important role in helping to improve their overall health and well-being.”
