He looks at what connections he can make and what options seems exciting and do-able to those people he's formed relationships with. Andrews says that the Ambassadors he works with are food service directors, teachers, parents, and administrators who are already champions with a shared goal of healthy foods in the schools. He says the most effective ambassadors for schools are the kids, themselves. Lakeview also has a hoop house garden and accompanying education with their Environmental Science class. Lakeview school district has also committed to purchasing food from Sprout for their food service department.
Battle Creek Public Schools' food service department has committed to purchasing food from Sprout, and Marshall and Pennfield's food services already partner with them to provide fresh, local options to their students. Paul Yettaw is the food service director for Marshall Public Schools. We met after the conference to see the availability of products that work in the school meals program. The quality and freshness of the products is an awesome benefit for the students. And several schools have an after-school market once a week, where students manage a farm-stand table in order to sell Sprout produce to parents.
Small steps to take back a lost food connection Sprout isn't unique in seeking to change the established norm of food-like products in school systems. In Kalamazoo, there is a group called Healthy Foods in Kalamazoo. It's a county-wide community advocacy effort to support socially just wellness initiatives, with an emphasis on healthy foods in schools. And the state of Michigan has a grant-based Farm-to-School initiative that centers around efforts to serve local foods in school and early childcare and education food programs.
What makes Sprout unique is its approach. Andrews says he believes in options. Yes, bureaucracy is involved, and there is a fight to be had. We have to go and talk. We have to not know the right answers. The way that Sprout has made connections with schools — we're not experts. We're learning as we go. So, how do you build relationships with people who don't have time?
