2018 Winter Olympics Passport Activity

Prepare for the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games just like an Olympic athlete. Create your travel passport to PyeongChang, South Korea, pick your events, and practice for the big day. You’ve only got a few weeks! The Olympic Games start February 9th and are followed by the Paralympic Games on March 9th. Winning an Olympic Gold Metal is within reach, and a white tiger named Soohorang, the 2018 Olympic Mascot, will be cheering for you!

We did a full cooking demo using the Pasta with Beans and Greens recipe for the youth, who were extremely interested in watching and learning about the ingredients and why they are healthy. All the youth who watched the demo tried the food. And, many who were not able to watch also came over for a sample. In addition, The Foodlink Curbside Market parks just one building over from the Boys & Girls Club, so we were able to walk the youth over to the truck after the workshop so that they could see it and use pocket change to get some fruits and vegetables. Any youth who didn’t have pocket change could get a free apple.
