CREATING hEALTHY KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDES, AND BELIEFS in schools
There is generally a warm-up and a cool down built in to a work out or exercise routine. The huge chunk in-between is where all the hard work takes place. Results happen.
It is a similar cycle for the apple farmer. Once the fall harvest is complete, thoughtful planning yields a successful growing season for the following year. The picture to the left is from a real live farm to school farm taken just days ago! Quarry Hill Orchards OH
School nutrition programs can be thought of in the same way. We have broken through the first tedious weeks and are hitting our stride. Keep pushing. Don't miss the opportunity that hard work and effort bring. Take chances, reach higher and push yourself and your team.
For me, this time of year is tough as the days are getting disturbingly short. I try to turn this into a positive by buckling down on purposeful projects that take lots of focus. Just like that middle chunk of the work-out and the farm that is winterizing, this is where results happen. Make the most of the coming months in your school nutrition program. The outcome will be impressive.
Let's keep reaching for the stars to feed and educate our school communities.
