FOODPLAY was a huge success and a great way to bring the whole community together to celebrate healthy habits. There’s nothing better than parents and kids learning together how to make healthier choices! Parents got to meet and greet our school nutrition staff and taste a wide variety of the healthy foods we’re serving up in our lunch and breakfast programs. A great time was had by all!”
—Deb Mugford, School Food Service Director, Tewksbury Public Schools, MA
FOODPLAY made for a fantastic Family Night! We have a hard time getting parents to come to our events, but after the kids saw FOODPLAY at school, they ‘dragged’ their whole families back to school. They filled the entire gym, and stayed late to find out more about how to help their kids eat healthier and be more active. FOODPLAY was a great way to engage the community, especially our hard to reach parents.”
—AJ Juarez, Community Health Educator, MA Public Health Association, Springfield, MA
Thanks for the wonderful show. Now I started eating better and healthier foods. P.S. My mother says thank you, too!”
