As educators, we do our best to prepare our students for the future—but what does this...
We are excited to congratulate Macey Bunn, a dedicated teacher at Timpview High School, for her recent achievement in winning the prestigious NourishTank competition at Utah State University, and receiving a full feature article with Cache Valley Daily (linked below). Alongside her team, including Saydee Longhurst and Lisa Hunsaker, Bunn presented an innovative solution to address food insecurity in our communities.
Their project, Farm 2 Fork Goes Mobile, entails the creation of a fresh food truck aimed at delivering locally sourced produce to students and families at Provo Title I schools. This initiative not only provides essential nourishment but also incorporates educational components, promoting healthy eating habits among the recipients.
Bunn’s enthusiasm and commitment to eradicating food insecurity were evident as she expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to present their groundbreaking program.
To quote Bunn from her feature article: “It was amazing to be in the presence of so many people who are also passionate about fighting food insecurity in our community. I was grateful to be able to present our program in front of judges who could envision our dream and encourage us to move forward. We are so passionate about food insecurity and are excited to take the steps to put our program into action.”
In a state where one in every eleven individuals faces food insecurity, initiatives like Farm 2 Fork Goes Mobile underscore the urgency to address this pressing issue.
We celebrate Macey Bunn and her team’s success, heralding their inspirational initiative aimed at making a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by food insecurity.
