October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and one school is marking the occasion by serving up numerous helpings of pink pasta. While it is not unusual for brands to roll out pink-hued products this time of year, this pastel-colored cafeteria meal puts a whole new twist on the tradition.
The pink pasta is being served at Northwest Kidder Middle School in Jackson, Michigan, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The idea to serve up pink-hued noodles came from the school's Food Director Liz Evans, who "wanted to find a fun and creative way to bring cancer awareness to kids." Kids were then encouraged to spread the word about the unusual lunch in order to help raise awareness about breast cancer.
The clever promotion demonstrates how schools can use fun activities to help children engage with important issues such as cancer research.
