In our work we tried to support and promote school food action that helped participants Learn with Life.
The four learning steps we have articulated as integral to the process of Learning with Life are:
1) Memories – Sharing personal and community experiences of school food systems.
2) Reality (as “it is”) – the school food system as “it is”, and as it’s depicted in scholarly literature.
3) Dreams (“Reality as it could be”)– our vision of an ideal healthy, sustainable school food system?
4) Action (“Potential reality”) – identification of the shared visions, or the common points in our collective dream. How do we use these leverage points to create the world we want to live in?
