National Pizza Day- Heather Lake and Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza
March 7, 2022
Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and Heather Lake of Fox 5 News collaborated in support of Monarch School Project. Heather Lake participated in a National Pizza Day contest making a signature pizza in partnership with Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and won! Thanks to their generous support, we received $5,000 supporting our Garden and Nutrition Program. Our Garden and Nutrition Program provides all of our K-12 students at Monarch with hands-on learning opportunities in our school nutrition lab and garden. Students learn about healthy eating habits and the relationship between food and our bodies. Through these programs, students are exposed to a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and learn where our food comes from, how to prepare food, and how food impacts our bodies. In addition, our middle school and high school students get to experience culinary vocational training, exploring potential career paths and interests. Our after-school program was lucky to receive pizza as a special treat. Visit your local Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza to try out the special creation by Heather Lake!
