Outline

Project for connecting local farmers and children through school lunch. School Lunch Support Teams are organized by local farmers, with the idea that children enjoy vegetables they see in the field on their way to school, while farmers watch them each day. The teams provide reliable seasonal produce to school lunch centers. Through this interaction between farmers and children, gratitude, understanding, expectation and connections are developed, creating the Cycle of Happiness. Another positive cycle is created: for farmers in sales expansion, using small-lot vegetables and creating a platform for small-scale farmers; for children in dietary education to promote their understanding of food; and for communities in taking measures against farmland devastation and for regional activation.
