Waffle Wednesday
The Granville Middle School FUTP 60 and Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America made homemade waffles using buttermilk for the student body on Februrary 28, 2018. Ten students from FUTP 60 and FCCLA made the waffles and served them to their peers. Two hundred students ate the waffles that had sliced strawberries and syrup on them. Over half of the 200 students who tasted the waffles had not eaten breakfast. Thrity of the faculty members also enjoyed the waffles. Students sat and talked while they ate their waffle samples in the Family and Consumer Sciences room. This activity was in preparation for National Breakfast Week that is March 5-8, 2018. This activity started out the school day on a positive note. Some of the students eating the waffles wanted milk with them and we sent them to the breakfast cart to buy their milk from the school food service. We hope to increase sales of breakfast items each morning on this cart.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

They learned to use the waffle makers and serve the waffles together.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The Granville Middle School student body loved the waffles.

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

Getting students to come into the foods lab with friends to eat a breakfast item is difficult in the morning because they would rather not eat and socialize instead.
