Is the marriage between schools and fast food good for the children?
With all the talk about fast food and junk food and schools, the last thing you would expect a school to do is have a tie-in with a fast food restaurant.
But the neighborhood Wendy’s held a fundraiser for McPherson Elementary at Wolcott and Lawrence.
What was even more surprising is that the lighted sign outside the school said, “Eat Wendy’s.”
Schools need money, and sometimes they can’t be picky as to where they get it. However, our kids are already exposed to enough fast food marketing outside the school realm. Is it too much to ask to have the school be a sanctuary from marketing?
