I went to a taste testing at Coventry Elementary School. Staff from Green Mountain Farm to School taught the kids how to make kale chips. The kids loved it. They even made octopus creatures from the kale stems! And the ate the kale chips right up for snacks. It was funny to see them eating kale chips and oreos at the same time but they really seemed to enjoy the kale chips.
Food Challenge #5
Tell a story of one of your favorite Vermont local food experiences.
Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. - Barry Lopez
Eating locally food is better for a whole heap of reasons, but it's not always easy. Sharing stories helps us build community, and gives us the chance to learn how to incorporate local food into our lives.
- Pick a Food Category: Procuring/Growing/Eating/Sharing
- Check out our resource tips on the elements of a good story and why eating local is important.
- Tell YOUR story. Make it memorable, meaningful, funny, or moving. It should be one you want to tell - and one you'd want to hear.
