Bowman Multicultural Event and Resources Fair

Bowman Elementary School in Hayward hosted a Multicultural Event and Resource Fair.  Project EAT staff were quick to jump on board and host a family garden workday on the same day.  At the resource fair, students and parents had the opportunity to participate in a My Plate Activity at the Project EAT table.  The My Plate activity is a way of getting everyone to really think and see what food groups should be on their plates at every meal.  Many students were proud to share their knowledge on healthy eating with their families and with each other.  Project EAT staff were happy and very proud to see that students are becoming more aware of what a well-balanced plate should look like.  The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect for planting some starts and painting signs for the garden and for enjoying chilled oranges slices as a tasting.  Thanks for all the parents and students who came out to support this event.
