True Food Taste Tests expose students to new, flavorful menu items and encourage them to think critically about their food.  Student leaders and volunteers offer samples during lunch three times each year. Learn more in this Taste Test One-Pager.

Thank you to the Wedge Community Co-op for sponsoring our True Food Taste Tests!
  • “I love that it introduces real foods to the kids-it's a fun way to engage with the kids about healthy eating and creative thinking."
  • "I appreciate the opportunity for kids to try things they may not have a chance to at home. One of the students tried it, and told me he was thinking of going to a culinary school to be a chef, so he wants to try all different foods."
  • "It was a fun, simple way to introduce new flavors to the kids, and it was very low-stakes, so the kids felt comfortable accepting or declining the new food item."
