“Making good eating great fun” is the message that four local schools received with their recent program presented by Foodplay. Adairville, Auburn, Chandlers and Lewisburg elementary students attended a program sponsored by Jamye Stokes, Food Service Director for Logan County Schools that was centered on making healthy food choices and having an active lifestyle.
Foodplay’s fun-filled performances puts healthy eating and active lifestyles center stage. Along with a school-wide performance, schools receive extensive follow-up resources to keep the message alive in the classroom, cafeteria, and at home, all year long. The highly spirited program helps get everyone at the schools excited and on board to work together to create healthier schools and improve children’s eating and physical activity habits.
Foodplaywas founded in 1982 by nutritionist, Barbara Storper, to use the power of theater to turn kids on to healthy eating and active living. Since then, the Foodplayprogram has reached more than four million children across the county, and received hosts of awards including an Emmy Award.
