Most preschools have foods education programs with very little focus on plant-based foods. Help your school experience an all plant-based foods project. Then expand on the opportunity and share your work by submitting photos and recipes for publication in your school newsletter, local community news, and social media. Here students tested a recipe for a Vegan Pizza Party with neighborhood grocer Jensen’s Foods. The recipe was featured in their weekly newsletter and was a one of the most popular fetured recipes. Document each of your plant-based foods programs and you’ll have content for a collaborative cookbook that can be used as a school resource or a community fundraiser.
Ready made dough makes this a quick and easy project. Here is a recipe with instructions for leading a group of up to 12 children through a vegan pizza making session that introduces brands including LightLife’s Gimme Lean Sausage, Miyoko’s Vegan Mozz, Follow Your Heart’s shredded parmesan and Nooch It! a nutritional yeast based shakeable vegan cheese. Fun for everyone. (Photo: Westminister Presbyterian Preschool)
