Fresh It Up
If you haven’t done so already, it is ideal to get together a group of interested people from the school community (e.g. students, staff, parents/guardians/caregivers and other community members) to work on this badge. Be sure to engage the entire school community and provide opportunities for input as the work progresses. This will help increase buy-in from your school community.
The school cafeteria should be a place where students want to go to eat, socialize and relax before and between classes. To enjoy food, students need a pleasant and safe eating environment. Creating an inviting, comfortable and safe space will encourage students to stay at school instead of leaving school property for food, increasing the likelihood that students stay safe and connected within the school community. Students are more likely to eat nutritious foods when these foods are available, visible, appealing and affordable.
