Eat Local

Hellstern Middle School encourages the students to eat locally. They have a school garden and purchase as many local foods for the cafeteria as possible. Every month they highlight a food. In November, the highlighted food was fresh apples from a local orchard. Every student was offered an apple to try. The FUTP 60 team made posters to promote the event and also helped distribute the samples. The students love to taste test different foods!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Adults organized the event, but the students helped with promotion and distribution. As the school year goes on, the students' role will increase.
