Every month since February, the Fuel Up to Play 60 team hands out a fruit sample of a fruit that is not normally served in the school cafeteria. The students vote on the "best fruit" and add it to the breakfast or lunch menu in the future.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Students will ask food service to add the fruit to the monthly menu!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The student team and the adults assisted in prepping the fruit and handing it out to all of the classrooms.

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

Some fruit is more difficult to prepare then others and this may also make it difficult for food service staff. The Fuel Up to Play 60 team became efficient and could assist food service in the future also.
