This week, we reached out to Ann-Marie, Jacqueline, and Khan, the manager of CulinArt at Windward, to see if there is a possibility we can conduct an interview and look into the Pavilion food inventory and log of sales. We also created a survey that we hope to send out to the rest of our grade to measure the opinions of students about the food options in the Pavilion. The survey features a variety of questions and topics, ranging from food preferences to open-ended questions about reasons behind unhealthy eating. We are also planning to conduct a handful of interviews to get a deeper insight into the daily food choices of students in the seventh grade.
Once we’ve gathered the information, we will compare the results of our survey to the log of sales. From there, we will determine whether our goal is to help the Pavilion promote healthy options or stock healthier options. If students are not aware of the healthy options already being offered, we will explore the layout of the Pavilion on our own time and find out if we can change the location of certain foods or promote them in some other way. If there is simply a lack of choices, we will explain to the Culinart Group the importance of offering more heart-healthy options.
