Project Thrive Update

from ADAA

ADAA is partnering with Pedestal Foods on an exciting initiative — Project Thrive.

Pedestal Foods is a contract food services company with clients in higher education, assisted living and K-12. Pedestal Foods and their customers have identified student wellness, specifically in the area of anxiety, depression and suicide, as a major challenge and opportunity. ADAA and Pedestal Foods are taking action together to address these issues.

Under the leadership of President Karen Cassiday, ADAA has created an evidence-based protocol for the company to train their staff and create experiences in the dining areas that promote student mental wellness.

The Project Thrive initiative is rooted in positive psychology. It launched this month at Father Ryan High School in Nashville, Tennessee. The photo pictured to the right is the "shout-out" wall from the first day of the project. The "Shout Out" Wall is a place for students and Pedestal Foods staff to post notes about gratitude, good humor, kindness and friendliness.
