School lunch project- 5 lunches!

Our 6th grade school lunch program turned out awesome. Students designed 5 lunches that incorporated the new USDA guidelines and the student’s own creative & delicious ideas. There was also a push to use local & organic foods. They had 2 weeks to work on this project and they came out with some very insightful and dynamic school lunches. I threw in a couple curve balls- one lunch had to be gluten-free and another had to be vegan. They had to illustrate the lunches and then do a written reflection on the project. Jeff & I were beyond impressed by all the hard work! A great part of this project was having the students walk around and put observations on post-it-notes and then stick them to lunches that intrigued them. Can we start changing the lunch system now please!
