School Lunch

How do students experience lunch? If we asked them, what would they want to change?

An idea came out of Collab Lab 15 (Health Care Connections) that we explored in a bit more detail in Collab Lab 17, Healthy Food Passport. The notion was to engage students in a exploration at the intersection of food, healthy eating, and culture.  Within that discussion, two ideas jumped out at us:

  • start with a question that students care deeply about
  • tell a story

What would it look if students in schools across Milwaukee told the story of school lunch from their perspective, dealing with the issues that matter to them?  Could we pull those stories together into something larger that could prompt community discussions that could further engage students in meaningful work.
