No One Eats Alone Contest!!!

Contest Details:

“Across an ocean, over lots of huge bumpy mountains, across three hot deserts, and one smaller ocean…there lay the tiny school called Ascentdelicious.

In most ways, it was very much like any other tiny school. It had a main hall lined with classrooms, a playground with climbing equipment and lots of grass for running, an assortment of fabulous teachers and students, and the most amazing lunchroom.

Why was the lunchroom amazing? Food wasn’t prepared in Ascentdelicious’ cafeteria. They didn’t need it. The sky supplied all the food they could possibly want. The only thing that was really different about Ascentdelicious was its weather. Everything that everyone ate came from the sky.

Whatever the weather served, that was what the teachers and students ate. But it never rained rain. It never snowed snow. And it never blew just wind. It rained things like cheese sauce and macaroni. It snowed tacos and chili. And sometimes the wind blew in storms of meatballs.

The teachers and students could listen the weather report in the morning announcements and they would even hear a prediction for the next day’s food.”   *Loosely adapted from the story “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” by Judi Barrett

Food for thought: “If food dropped like rain from the sky, wouldn’t it be marvelous! Or would it? It could, after all, be messy. And you’d have no choice. What if you didn’t like what fell? Or what if too much came? Have you ever thought of what it might be like to be squashed flat by a pancake?”


What do you predict the weather will bring to the school of Ascentdelicious?

Submit a one-page drawing / story line that will be added to Ascent’s version of Cloudy with Chance of Meatball story.   DUE to the Kitchen Managers in each kitchen no later than 3/4/2019!
