Pedro’s Hungry Ride


Pedro’s bike search for a healthy snack leads him to school, the mayor’s office and the local grocery store, but there are no fruits and vegetables to be found. When Pedro glues his mouth shut in protest, his teacher, mayor and grocer join together to help Pedro learn how to grow healthy snacks of his own. Many children like Pedro live in places called food deserts where there are no stores in their neighborhoods that sell healthy food. Pedro’s story shows what one community without fruits and vegetables did to change that.
