Our Model

Our program consists of a unique seven-lesson interactive nutrition and food sustainability curriculum, taught once a week for one hour. Each week, a new topic is explored, actively engaging the students with visuals, hands on activities, group discussions, and outdoor exercises. Each lesson lines up with state education standards to supplement and reinforce current classroom activities.

We utilize a behavioral change approach in which we establish a personal and friendly peer-to-peer dynamic in every classroom. During the first classroom visit, five elementary school students are paired with one college volunteer from a local university to form a “KIN group”. Throughout the quarter, KIN groups participate in activities that build strong kinship between the instructor and the student.


We believe our peer-to-peer model is the most effective way to change behavior as each university instructor is able to leave a lasting impression.


To accommodate learning during the current pandemic, KIN is transitioning in-person instruction to video-recorded lessons. This will include a combination of acting and animation partnered with live KINstructor Zoom discussions. These videos will be available and implemented by Fall, 2020.
