The healthy school cafeteria can go a long way in empowering good eating habits in youth and ensuring that students are healthy with their meal choices. Recognizing the importance of this, Gen Z-friendly restaurant concept Sweetgreen and FoodCorps enter a collaboration that seeks to reimagine the institution in the next two years by providing food education and access, as well as promote responsible practices and community.
The movement toward the realization of the healthy school cafeteria is done through a series of initiatives. One, for example, is 'The Tasty Challenge' where students in Aberdeen, North Carolina got to vote on their favorite style of carrots -- "raw, roasted, or in soup form." Another instance of the Sweetgreens x FoodCorps collaboration is 'Our Cafeteria,' which asked children to come up with ways to make the cafeteria experience better.
