Resources


One of the features of the We Are Meant To Eat Together project is that it is designed to model ways that we can engage in play, curiosity, and exploration as intentional learning opportunities- and then seek to extend them. A strategy that is used for extending the learning is to send every workshop participant home with resource and learning extension suggestions specific to the developmental stage and topics that the learners engaged with.  Many of those suggestions are pulled from the resources on this page – but this resource page is also intended to provide links to and acknowledgement of other approaches, projects, and ideas that support whole-heart, whole-person, and healthy-communities.  If you have any suggestions for additions, please drop me a line!
