Patterson students are participating in a program called “Spice My Plate”. The University of Maryland wanted to study what and how teenagers eat. At the beginning of the study, each student received a food log to write what they eat for three days. Patterson students who completed the food log for the study received a $25 shopping gift card and kitchen instruments such as pots, pans, spices, etc.

The study began in the first week of March and will continue until May 15th. At the end of the study, students will  receive a $150 gift card for finishing the study. For more information about the health study, see Ms. Diehl in the Health Corps office.
