The School Food Bicycle Tour was developed by Sara Salo, MPH. Sara is dedicated to integrating daily wholesome meals into the lives of today’s youth. She has a diverse background that includes working with youth in the fields of athletics, health and nutrition. She received her Masters of Public Health degree, with an emphasis on Health Promotion, from Oregon State University in June of 2010. She is fascinated with examining and strategizing how the roles of place, communities and individuals come together to create and maintain sustainable food systems. She has also been involved in the cycling industry for many years and strongly believes encouraging more people to ride bikes for both recreation and transport can make a powerful impact on the world. Sara resides in Bend, Oregon and enjoys playing in the local mountains with her siberian husky, Grizwald, when her brain needs a break. Sara looks forward to learning what insight youth have to offer on the topic of school food and healthy living.
