Kids Eating Right Nutrition and Exercise for Life (KERNEL) introduces children to healthy living and eating habits through simple weekly activities at local farmers markets.

This is a salary position, and will require from 10 to 16 hours a week for, 13 weeks. Curriculum has already been created for this program.
