Lunch for school kids is not always a joyous affair, with many cafeterias offering less-than-average food and plenty of options that are unhealthy. IDEO wants to change this with its new concept for cafeterias, featuring locally sourced food and learning sections for students.
Instead of thinking of the cafeteria as a one-stop shop for greasy food and unhealthy options, IDEO imagines this area to feature bean bag chairs where kids can hang out and relax. Moreover, for the food selection, the company hopes to promote healthy eating locally sourced items along with a community kitchen. The best part is that the cafeteria does not stop at lunch, but also offers dinner kits to students for anyone who is busy after class and doesn't have time to rush home.
