Offer vs. Serve Breakfast Poster (Secondary) – What does yours look like?
The new breakfast regulations mean new menus, and correct cafeteria signage. Help your students understand a reimbursable, complete meal with colorful posters on the food line. Keep in mind the following:
-Visuals are the best way to understanding. Pictures speak volumes.
-Large and in charge. Make sure to put front and center. The larger the poster size the better.
Here is an example of a secondary poster from the Boulder Valley School District.
"The Ecological Farming Association nurtures healthy and just farms, food systems, communities and environment by bringing people together for education, alliance building and advocacy."
"Aware of intensifying world challenges and the basic need of people to feed themselves, we have been working for 40 years to develop an elegant, small-scale agricultural system — GROW BIOINTENSIVE® Sustainable Mini-Farming — that when practiced correctly, nurtures healthy soil fertility, produces high yields, conserves resources and can be used successfully by almost everyone. Our goal is to help this system be known and used locally...on a worldwide basis."
"The Economic Research Service is a primary source of economic information and research in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With over 350 employees, ERS conducts a research program to inform public and private decisionmaking on economic and policy issues involving food, farming, natural resources, and rural development.
ERS's highly trained economists and social scientists conduct research, analyze food and commodity markets, produce policy studies, and develop economic and statistical indicators. The agency’s research program is aimed at the information needs of USDA, other public policy officials, and the research community. ERS information and analysis is also used by the media, trade associations, public interest groups, and the general public."
If you want to avoid foods with the highest levels of pesticides, this chart will help inform your decisions. Learn about the "Dirty Dozen" (foods that are best to buy organic) and the "Clean 15" (foods with the lowest levels of pesticides).
"Equal Exchange has created Big Change since 1986. Our founders envisioned a food system that empowers farmers and consumers, supports small farmer co-ops, and uses sustainable farming methods. They started with fairly traded coffee from Nicaragua and didn't look back.
Today, we continue to find new and powerful ways to build a better food system. We partner with co-operatives of farmers who provide high-quality organic coffees, teas, chocolates, bananas, olive oil, and almonds.
We invite you to join us. Together we can create stronger local communities, a more just food system and a healthier planet."
"The Fair Trade Federation is the trade association that strengthens and promotes North American organizations fully committed to fair trade. The Federation is part of the global fair trade movement, building equitable and sustainable trading partnerships and creating opportunities to alleviate poverty."
