But unfortunately, as my luck should have it, my meeting with the healthy schools grant coordinator today was canceled.
I had paced around all morning only to find that the meeting confirmation email I had sent days ago hadn't actually sent. Technology fails me sometimes.
So, in anticipation of continuing my journey towards ingredient transparency, I decided to send another email instead of rescheduling the meeting.
It went sort of like this...
Actually, meeting on Thursday may not be totally necessary. I've thought a lot about our conversation we had over break in regards to the conflict of interest involved in working towards ingredient transparency for our district.
However, it is also clear to me and my teammates that funding through the grant is not absolutely necessary. With that in mind, we will be continuing with our endeavors with a few alterations to our original plans. I intend to further inspire wellness at my school without these constraints.
Thank you for this opportunity and I am sorry that it didn't work out.
So I sent that this morning and hope to get a response by tomorrow. I guess it doesn't really matter anyway... I feel like I've made up my mind by this point.
Now I'm free to do what I need to do.
