Go Be It: Implement change in your community

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
