Lunch date: Xpress visits Haw Creek Elementary

Lunch date: Xpress visits Haw Creek Elementary-attachment0

We recently visited a third-grade class at Haw Creek Elementary School in east Asheville and joined the kids for lunch in the cafeteria. In this video, our Food & Features Coordinator Mackensy Lunsford chows down on chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes and green beans, and talks to students about what they like (and don’t like) to eat and why.

This is a companion piece to Lunsford’s Feb. 2 article, “Beyond Chicken Nuggets,” which looks at local efforts to improve school nutrition.

    Ok, that was fraking adorable and heartening.

    GREAT job talking to these kids without being condescending, Mackensy.

    Good for these kids, knowing the differences between all the different foods in the cafeteria! They are smart!
