School Lunch in Japan
In this Japanese elementary school, lunch isn’t just a break, it’s a learning experience. Some of the food is grown in the school garden by the students themselves. The kitchen staff prepare food for each class, and then the kids take over by bringing food to the classroom.
It’s an honor to be on the class serving crew, for which they learn about food safety and hygiene. They also learn about the sources of the meal. The teacher eats with the students, and then everyone brushes their teeth! Students also take care of cleanup, with duties dependent on their age. (via Viral Viral Videos)
