Each strategy includes staff resources, student handouts (Cafeteria Connections) and family handouts (Fit Foundations).
Learning Café(PDF) The school cafeteria is a “learning laboratory.” The cafeteria-related activities and ideas in this guide were developed for the cafeteria manager to conduct alone or to team with a teacher to enhance concepts taught in class.
