Taste Test Tuesday
- Lisa Runiono, Hurricane Town Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement, Student Leadership, Teamwork
The Fuel Up to Play 60 leaders met and decided to have a Taste Test Tuesday event. Kroger's donated the fresh pineapple and parent volunteers helped with cutting the pineapple. Many students had not tried fresh pineapple and did not know what the fruit looked like without being processed. The FUTP 60 leaders created individual voter cards, a classroom voter card, and delivered all the samples to the classrooms. The classroom tasted the fresh pineapple and voted thumbs up or down if they liked it. Then all classroom votes were tallied for an overall poll. After tasting and tallying all the classroom votes, the result was that the majority of the students liked fresh pineapple.
