Sustainable School Lunch Program– it’s working!

As you may remember, a few months ago, some of our DWU students took a trip to Uganda to help our community partners there with a sustainable school lunch program– using hydroponics and other gardening techniques to grow vitamin rich food for their weekly meals at school.

We have good news!!!  From Alisha Vincent,

“The sustainable school lunch program is WORKING! They planted leafy greens just three weeks ago and are already harvesting! Now incorporating this vitamin rich food into their weekly diets at school. They also already planted again. SO AMAZING! Great job team!”

Yesterday’s Conference for Leadership, Innovation, and Social Change was sponsored by the McGovern Center, Kelley Center, and the Stark Lectureship.  We listened to several different speakers– including some of our very own DWU students during the InnovaTalks!  (Our own version of TedTalks.)

The purpose of the conference is to encourage discussion and inspiration around leadership, innovative ideas, and social change.  Check out some of our photos in the slideshow below:
