First-Grade Entrepreneurs Host Annual Food Truck and Marketplace

Lausanne's campus was full of excitement this morning as first-graders served up good food and great times during their annual Food Truck and Marketplace.

The Lynx entrepreneur's set up shop outside of the Lower School building and took on the roles of cashier, server, quality control officer, chef and customer service representative.

Family members had the opportunity to shop for recipes and products made from herbs the first-graders grew themselves. The students' goods ranged from cookies, candy, body scrubs, painted rocks and even dog treats for their furry friends. 

The student-run event is a culmination of their Primary Years Programme (PYP) unit, How We Organize Ourselves, which explores the process of running a business. To prepare for the big day, students cultivated herbs and learned about money concepts, including profit, loss, service goods, consumers and trade. 

Students will donate the proceeds earned during this year's Food Truck and Marketplace to MIFA, an organization that supports the independence of vulnerable seniors and families in crisis through high-impact programs. 

"It was wonderful to have parents on campus to participate and purchase the items their children created," Head of Lower School Kara Barbour. "The students ended up raising more than $1,200 for MIFA."
