School Food Bike Tour Makes Stop in Linda Vista Oct. 20

Montgomery Middle and Linda Vista Elementary students will celebrate Food Day by welcoming Sara Salo, the founder of the National School Food Bike Tour, to their campuses on Oct. 20. The School Food Bike Tour is a 6,000+ mile self-supported bike tour that promotes healthy eating, cycling and school wellness.

Sara will be participating in Linda Vista Elementary’s “Breakfast in the Classroom" program, helping Food Services employees bag meals and going with students to deliver the meals to the classrooms. After visiting 4th and 5th grade classes, she will join a local farmer at Montgomery Middle School to present a health lesson in several classrooms. Her time at Montgomery will also include eating a healthy lunch with students and a tour of their school garden.
