Grandview/¿uuqinak’uuh Elementary sets a high benchmark

.

Colleen Kimmett, writer for The Tyee tells the story of the fine work being done at Grandview/¿uuqinak’uuh Elementary in her recent feature  “How Grandview Elementary Fills up Student Plates.” In it she documents the efforts of numerous community partners working together to provide healthy food to hungry kids, and the results point to success, if at times in odd-beat ways: “…[instead of making salads] most [students] keep their vegetables carefully, almost obsessively, segregated on their green plastic trays and consume each item — kale, carrot, apple and sunflower seeds — in turn.”

Kimmett goes on to look forward at the exciting work of Fresh Roots Urban Farm at Van Tech which we mentioned in our previous post. Exciting times to be thinking and eating green in Vancouver! Read the full article here.
