If you haven't visited your local school cafeteria in a while – I would suggest that now might be a good time to do so. Does your school have a salad bar? If not, why not? Thanks to Whole Foods and Chef Ann's Salad Bar Project, all public schools within a 50-mile radius of a Whole Foods Market are eligible to apply for a Salad Bar Project grant.
I am thrilled to report that as a mother and a PTO Board member I filled out this application and with just a few questions for the school district, we were awarded a super shiny, kid-sized, rocket ship looking salad bar that continues to receive rave reviews from the harshest critics – the kids.
Not only is the salad bar a hit with the kids, but, because of our experience last year, the district will be purchasing a salad bar for each of the schools in our district. Total victory!
