Michigan Cherry Slurp 2017
- Heather Borden, Springport Middle School
- Access to Healthy Foods
The FUTP 60 Student Team at Springport Middle School put on an event on February 14, 2017 offering their peers samples of Dried Michigan Cherries as a healthy alternative to the typical sweet treats consumed on Valentine’s Day. Along with the cherry tasting, the students led a fun “spin the wheel” activity that gave students the opportunity to learn nutrition and agricultural production facts about Michigan Cherries. Students also asked their peers to sign the FUTP 60 pledge banner. They plan to hang the banner prominently in the cafeteria as a reminder of their commitment to improving the health of their school community through increased physical activity and healthier food choices.
