Smoothies

Fayetteville High School used our grant money last year to buy blenders. We now serve smoothies every Thursday for breakfast. The cafeteria manager reports that they serve 200+ smoothies every Thursday and would probably serve more if they had more blenders. She told me that although making the smoothies is time intensive, it is completely worth it! She loves knowing that her students are getting a healthy breakfast that will fuel them all the way to lunch. AWESOME!!!

How did you accomplish your goals?

Working together is key! The district was behind the program. The district RD found recipes that could be implemented and taste tested them with the students.
