Huband Park Elementary
Salad Bar Coordinator
Courtenay BC
I live in beautiful Courtenay BC. I have been running the salad bar program at Huband Park Elementary for three years. We are serving 220 kids every Tuesday with six rotating menus. I love that the kids are eating beautiful, fresh, local, colorful food. Taking it one step further to teach the kids to be mindful when they eat is important. Where did there food come from? Who was in the kitchen making it? Was it made with love? What colors on their plate and taking a moment to be grateful for the food in front of them. My dream is nutritional education for all children. To empower and inspire them to love themselves enough to put whole, beautiful, healthy, colorful food into their bodies every day. If we can do this, we can make the world a healthier place, one child at a time.
