About this event

Please join us October 9 to honor the work and legacy of an extraordinary nonprofit leader and founder of Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids, Dr. Thianda Manzara.

Her dream - to "Veggie-cate the First State" – is well on its way to becoming reality. We want to celebrate this achievement with our friends - old & new - and bid a fond farewell to Thianda.

Our mission is to inspire healthier lives by providing youth with joyful school gardening experiences and the opportunities to eat the garden-fresh vegetables they've grown.

Our vision is a vegetable garden in every school, leading to generations of healthy families throughout Delaware.

"When children experience the magic of planting seeds and watching them grow, the garden vegetables become their vegetables. That simple transformation leads to tasting and liking, and ultimately can improve their diets and lives."
- Dr. Thianda Manzara.
