market research
Market Research
  • Findings:
    • Lack of nutrition-related cooking programs in Midwest, more prominent on the East Coast, West Coast, and the South West
    • School gardens are becoming more and more popular, could possibly integrate gardening into the Eat Healthy 365 program in the future
    • Some programs offer healthful lunches to students once or twice a month, after considerable expansion, this could be a possibility
    • The State of California offers substantial grants to similar programs through their Network for a Healthy California
      • It would benefit Ohio to form a similar network, so that programs such a Eat Healthy 365 can thrive
