Will The Children still get pizza?
Don’t worry, we will still feed The Children pizza, Principal Groff told us reassuringly. Whew. How would The Children manage without their pizza?
Pizza probably won't leave school lunches for a long time. While P.S. 244 is taking huge steps in the right direction, it's still the exception, and wholesale, nationwide change is typically pretty slow.
Mr. Groff knows it won't be easy, but thinks it's possible: "We live in a society that has developed a sense of 'what is a meal' that is probably different from... a lot of other countries. How do we change our mindsets? What we know is that vegetables are a larger and larger part of that... We think that if we start with the kids, then as they grow, they learn more about it, and they bring it back to their parents."
