2.8.17-RP-SaladDay_IMG_0018 On Thursday, February 8th, thanks to a grants from Kaiser-Permanente and Atena Corporation, CommunityGrows was able to partner with the Green Team at Rosa Parks Elementary School to offer a monthly Salad Day. One of the parents on the Green Team, Jocelyn Herndon, was able to secure delicious produce from Whole Foods on California Street for the day. The morning was spent washing and chopping tomatoes, jicama, apples, carrots and oranges for the salad and crudités.2.8.17-RP-SaladDay_IMG_0012 Then off to the cafeteria to offer the bounty to the students. Everyone loves Salad Day and lined up to fill their plates. 2.8.17-RP-SaladDay_IMG_0068 Parents from the Green Team also went around the room offering seconds to everyone. 2.8.17-RP-SaladDay_IMG_0074Student monitors helped everyone recycle their leftovers. 2.8.17-RP-SaladDay_IMG_0063Another highlight of the lunch time was receiving a healthy sticker for eating the salad.
