Covenant Christian School Students Successfully Runs Food Challenge at End of School Carnival

Williamsburg, Va. (May 22, 2017) Mrs. Eunice Clark, math and science teacher at Covenant Christian School (CCS), wanted to challenge her middle school students to a class project to put Food Network challenges to shame. "Last year, the class discussed foods and science and the students really loved the idea of learning through food. So, this year they had an opportunity to learn real life skills by having this food tent challenge," said Mrs. Clark.

CCS students and their parent drivers were in charge of the entire process from buying and cooking the food to serving it and collecting money. The students split into two teams, Na'cho Business and The Bacon Bunch. Na'cho Business had an extensive menu filled with Mexican food favorites: guacamole, tacos, and sopapillas. The Bacon Bunch's menu did not disappoint with its BBQ chicken and bacon kabobs, cheese and bacon covered fries, and bacon bark! They spent countless hours planning and preparing for the end of year school Carnival! The students were hoping to recover their costs at the very least. Their true hope was to make a profit. And they succeeded and made over $140! "The middle school students took surveys of what foods the school body wanted and they delivered exactly that," stated Mrs. Clark.

Parents, teachers, and students alike were impressed with the quality of the food and the organization of the entire Carnival Day! Students enjoyed the food and activities such as face painting, water games, the inflatable jousting challenge, obstacle course, and 15 X 15 water slide! "Our students learned skills in this process through experiencing what it is like to run a mobile food business from conception to completion," said Mrs. Clark.
