Dozens of kids spent part of their summer getting their hands dirty in Bay Shore.
Pronto of Long Island hosted a farm-to-table STEM camp for at-risk children.
As part of the program, the campers learned yoga, took nutrition workshops, computer classes and grew their own garden.
"These kids are young enough to start being very excited growing their own food and learning to cook their own food and we use ingredients that are available to everyone," says Pronto Board Director Kathy Bennett.
The children also made a cookbook of all the meals they learned to make.
