New Vista High School’s Earth Task Force, sponsored by the Cottonwood Institute had a successful (and delicious!) second annual Local Lunch. This special event put on for New Vista’s 300 students had been planned for months and it turned out to be great. ETF collaborated with staff at The Kitchen Restaurant to plan and create an all-local meal to raise awareness of the importance of eating local and supporting local farms and restaurants. ETF’s intent was to educate their peers on food miles through a fun and approachable event, and nothing grabs people’s attention like food!
