This afternoon we were very fortunate to have Corrina Smith (Ms. Vonder Haar’s sister) from the Columbia Farmer’s Market come talk to our class for our study of Nutrition. She is the manager for the local Farmer’s Market here in Columbia, Missouri. She started by having all of our students draw a picture of what they thought a farmer’s market is. After sharing the importance of buying our food locally, we were able to join the Good Food Detective Club. Every Saturday morning at the market, children can participate in this club, completing activities that allow them to earn Munch Money. This is real money that children can use to buy certain foods from the market. Our students earned two dollars of Munch Money today for joining the club!
