FOODPLAY

UMB Hosts Local Schools for Health and Nutrition Education

On Tuesday Nov. 10, students from George Washington Elementary, James McHenry Elementary/Middle School, and Calvin Rodwell Elementary were treated to the Emmy-award winning theatrical performance FOODPLAY, a Hippodrome Foundation production promoting healthy eating and exercise habits.

The FOODPLAY performance at Westminster Hall was the culmination of what has become an annual health and nutrition program sponsored by UMB and UMMC that brings local students to the UMB campus.

Participants learned about the importance of locally sourced produce and healthy eating habits. They were shown healthy cooking demonstrations and given an opportunity to purchase produce from the Farmers Market using “kids bucks” provided to participants.
