Today is all about eating good and being healthy. We start by heading off to summer camp! We visit Soil Born Farms in metropolitan Sacramento, a 55 acre urban farm. Besides growing fruits & vegetables to ensure everyone in the community has affordable, high quality produce, this farm also runs an education program that teaches students about farming, how their food is grown, and the importance of the nearby river to the growing process. We catch up with them during the first week of summer camp!

Then we follow students into class. But it's not your average class! This one's on wheels…18 of them! And they're learning how to cook! It's Chef Jamie Oliver's Big Rig Teaching Kitchen and the meals are all good for you. See what's on the menu today!

Did you know that as much as 30 percent of all produce grown on commercial farms is plowed under?...because it doesn't look good enough to be sold in supermarkets? Yes, that is true. But Eco Company found one organization that is gleaning the rejected crops of local organic farmers to provide local schools with healthier lunches. It's free...and they say you could do it too.
