Creek Nation Smoothie Station
- Mary Jo Geddes, Tates Creek High School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Success with Funds
We created a smoothie station during breakfast at our school. We purchased a commercialized Vitamix blender for the cafeteria with our Funds. On October 29, we hosted a taste testing event during all four lunches. Marketing students promoted the taste testing event. They handed out free smothies to our students. The smoothie flavor for November is Apple Cinnamon, which consists of apple sauce, apple juice, cinnamon, and yogurt. Smoothies are sold in 8 oz increments on Thursdays during breakfast. So far, we are averaging around 40 sold each week, which is good for us since we only average 200 total for breakfast. We hope to see the numbers increase as the school year progresses. We plan on changing the recipe each month as well.
