Altoona Snack Shack
Students at Altoona High School created a Snack Shack where students can purchase healthy smoothies twice a week at the end of the school day. We hope to sell more healthy options in the future, but started with the smoothies. It was a rocky start, but students are now enjoying the smoothies!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

At first students did not like the recipe that we created for the smoothies. So, we went back to the drawing board and tested out many different smoothie recipes. We found one that we thought would be successful, and then held a free tasting day for all students. Now, many students are enjoying smoothies twice a week.
