Friday is Food Revolution Day!

 

We’ve got some special guests from Sprout coming in to cook with our health classes, and I can’t wait to see what they’ve got for us.

Rather than just complaining, they actually made some sustainable changes. An awesome example of the power of student voice, and this week is a great time to share it with the kids.

At the very least, join this Thunderclap and spread the word to your social network. Maybe you’ll inspire someone to eat their veggies.
