Kids Art Contest

The Kids Art Contest is a fun way to get kids excited about drawing all types of food. Deadline for this years 2018 contest is April 15th. This contest is open to Oregon schools that OSU Extension Service SNAP-Ed is present in. But we will accept all drawings from students not from Oregon SNAP-Ed schools, and may feature the artwork.

Bingo - Spring Break

The Food Hero Spring Break BINGO project was created to promote comprehensive wellness for children and their families over Spring Break. The card includes 24 tasks covering healthy eating (14), physical activity (7), and less screen time (3). All tasks were designed to be achievable and replicable by most families, and desirable to be reported by schools as collective successes. The card was piloted at 4 elementary schools (average 70% free/reduced school lunch enrollment) in 2017 and the results can be reviewed at the Poster link below (a peer reviewed poster).

Recipe Tasting

Once submitted to the Food Hero team potential recipes go through testing.  In addition to being tested for overall flavor, color, and texture we look for recipes that have low-cost and easy to find ingredients, easy to follow instructions, and a reasonable preparation time.  Each recipe is tasted and rated by several people using these comment cards.
