Community Nutrition Project Ideas

Instructor: Shanna Fox

Shanna has been part of the whirlwind world of teaching middle school for 20 years. She has a Master of Education degree in instructional design.

Engage middle or high school students in projects to help them gain hands-on experience with community nutrition. Guide them through the steps of redesigning a mall food court, mapping out area food options, and transforming holiday recipes.

Community Nutrition Projects

Building knowledge of community nutrition is an important skill when addressing this topic. Allowing students an opportunity to apply that knowledge in new and creative ways is also essential. Use these projects with your middle or high school students to reinforce community nutrition concepts and help students transform those concepts into a hands-on experience. These projects offer you a way to engage students in renovating a mall food court to incorporate healthier options, mapping out area food choices, and infusing nutrition into holiday recipes. You can assign these as individual, partner, or team projects.

Food Court Renovation

Mall food courts are replete with choices, but how many of them are healthy options? Your students are about to find out! Engage them in this project to help them analyze existing restaurant choices and strategize about how to make nutrition a front runner in designing a food court.
