TCSDF Teacher Grant in Action!

This middle school class is the hotspot for a student-prepared and publicized gourmet, nutritious, locally-sourced lunch weekly — if you are lucky enough to get a spot!

Melissa Bryant designed the project. With contributions from local farmers, beekeepers, etc. and a ‘start-up’ teacher grant from the TCSD Foundation, she has worked with students to develop enthusiasm for interesting, nutritious foods. We hear that the program is being enthusiastically received by students!

One popular offering: Cupcakes with a mystery vegetable ingredient were offered to any students who came into the library, and students voted on what the ingredient was. Everyone voted the cupcakes were delicious.  Who would have known that they contained kale!
