“Food Talk” was a collaboration between Seattle World School (Named Seattle’s Secondary Bilingual Orientation Center or SBOC at the time), Refugee Women’s Alliance, and Jack Straw Cultural Center. Students from the SBOC worked with a nutritionist from Seattle Children’s Hospital and Jack Straw staff members to create public service announcements about healthy eating habits.
The students wrote scripts, created sound effects, and recorded their pieces at the Jack Straw studios. The students worked in pairs, recording their pieces in English and their native languages. Languages represented were Nepali, Tigrigna, Amharic, and Spanish.

“Food Talk” was produced with the generous support of School’s Out Washington’s Healthy Youth, Healthy Futures Washington program and the Harvest Foundation.
