Public School 216 participates in the Wellness in the School Program .
Our experienced chef prepares an assortment of fresh salads and foods daily.
In fall 2010, the first Showcase Edible Schoolyard School program opened at P.S. 216. We transformed a cement parking lot into a half-acre organic garden where students from kindergarten are taught how to harvest over 60 types of fruits, grains and vegetables. P.S. 216, The Arturo Toscanini School, is an elementary school with a diverse student body. P.S. 216’s community is a multi-cultural neighborhood of families from Coney Island, Brighton Beach and Gravesend who are predominantly Asian, Russian, Latino, and Black. With no community supported agriculture programs, only two public gardens and the third lowest percentage of green, open space in Brooklyn, Gravesend was a natural choice for establishing an inaugural showcase Edible Schoolyard. The outdoor Garden Kitchen
is now open - Come Visit!
