This is the first post in what will be a weekly series of suggestions to get involved with school food and cycling. I will be giving one simple (and fun!) idea for students, schools and families. Let the growing of change commence!
Theme of the Week: Educate yourself
- Introduce yourself to a kitchen staff member. Ask him or her what their favorite part of working in the cafeteria is. Share with your class.
- Take a family outing (bike ride, walk, scooter roll, etc.) in your neighborhood. Take note of pedestrian/bike friendly areas along with obstacles to traveling car-less. Are destinations such as stores or parks within a reasonable distance?
- Poll your students – what are their favorite cafeteria meals? Why?
Folks, remember: “Decide what to be and go be it.” -The Avett Brothers
