Shaler Area High School students mentor preschoolers on healthy eating

Shaler Area High School students received a grant that allows them purchase fresh foods and share lessons about healthy eating with preschool students.

The high school Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) department applied for and was awarded a Let’s Move Pittsburgh Champion Schools Grant Program small grant through Phipps Conservatory in late fall. The students used the money to purchase a Community Sponsored Agriculture (CSA) farm share through Kretschmann Family Organic Farm.

The high school students use the fresh produce received each month to teach lessons to the preschool students in the Shaler Area program about healthy eating, farming and ecology. The produce then is shared with the high school and preschool participants.
