Kids on the Central Coast have the chance to learn a strong work ethic while also taking part in the process of creating one of their favorite foods.

Fort Hope, an organization based in Arroyo Grande that focuses on helping at-risk youth, is hosting a “Taco Farm Day Camp” this summer.

Kids in third through sixth grade can sign up. They’ll make a different taco ingredient every day and on Friday, they’ll assemble the tacos.

Organizers say it’s a great way for kids to get outside and learn about agriculture.

“It’s just a great time for these children to get outside and learn where their food comes from and the amount of work it takes to create that food that they usually see in a grocery store and they don’t know where it comes from, so it’s a great week for these children and we love doing it,” said Pat Loomis of Fort Hope.

Taco Camp is a week-long day camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Sessions start the end of June and continue through the end of July.
