EATS, Eat Awesome Things at School, is a non-profit organization that works with the Park City School District to improve the school food programs and educate students on healthier eating.
EATS uses volunteers from the community to educate kids on healthier eating through cooking programs, taste tests, gardens, classroom projects and other food related activities.
Susan Odell and Ann Bloomquist started EATS in March, 2013 with Kathleen Britton, former Director of Child Nutrition Services in Park City. The three of them saw the benefits of community involvement with the school food programs.
