"I thought the Field Trip was excellent! It touched so many important aspects of the store as well as the importance of eating healthy, excercising and keeping our teeth clean."

"The kids got to go behind the scenes and see all of the different jobs in the grocery story. They were excited to see other parts of the store where they had never been or had never heard about. Overall, we enjoyed the experience. Thank you!"
