The district food service director approached the Ferry Fuel Up to Play 60 team with two ideas with which she needed assistance. The first idea was finding a way to promote the fact that any student purchasing a school lunch in March could be entered into a drawing for a basketball signed by the varsity team. The second idea was promotion of the 'Eat a Rainbow' fruit and veggie bar for St. Patrick's Day. The FUTP 60 team was challenged to come up with a way to promote both of these events. The team met and discussed options. They concluded that making posters and doing announcements would be most effective.
