Staff meal deliveries teach social skills: Sanford Middle School has found a creative way to encourage community spirit while teaching cooking to Life Skills students: staff meal deliveries. Together, students and staff collaborate to plan the meals, brainstorm ideas, choose recipes and make a list of ingredients. Each Friday the staff is informed about the upcoming week’s menu. The goal of the program is to help teach students valuable life skills. Students have benefited by eagerly moving around the building and offering meals while learning manners and social skills. Staff meal deliveries will continue through the school year and restart in the fall.
