Farm to School: Reflections by Taylor Hall

“Just one more bite.” “Don’t you want to grow up big and strong?” “A clean plate is a happy plate.” Do any of these sound familiar?

The thing about challenging times, though, is that they are often the catalyst for opportunities and growth. Necessity is the mother of invention. Diamonds are made under pressure. And a hundred other adages about growing through challenging times. 

I know this has been the case for the Whitewater Grocery Co.
