Description

The focus of my research was on food security. I had the opportunity to partner with Wellspring as an intern where the mission and focus was to promote healthy living and organic growing. Through educational programs and children taste testing activities, I was able to dig deeper into the idea of food security and what that looks like in America. One of the biggest challenges schools face is whether kids prefer the healthy organic or the unhealthy processed foods. Through Wellspring, data was collected during taste testing events at schools where children were able to independently express what organic foods they did and did not like. My project shows the importance of home grown organic food and points to a positive trend where food security can be no more.
