Popcorn as Social Capital
We developed a habit early of using on the proper ingredients to make our popcorn.
Our little operation started at Eureka Springs Recreation Center in 2010 in San Francisco, CA when we noticed that there were not any healthy snacks being offered as a vendor at the playground.
We used that model to develop a full on activity that takes place on Friday afternoon for about 2-3 hours providing music, entertainment, and popcorn to the young people.
If their supervising adult purchases one of the limited containers, that container can be used in a number of creative ways to build on the child’s education of nature, and the proper use of resources.
Today, across the United States there are several Recreation centers using this as a tool to deploy small success in all channels of a manager’s operations, and employ good customer delight strategies.
It is also used in innovate ways to reduce poverty.
