Cook. Healthy. Edible. Food. That’s what the CHEF in Project CHEF stands for. It’s called an acronym. We think that the words stand for what Project CHEF is all about. An acrostic poem starts with a word and this is the topic of the poem. The letters of the word become the first letter of each line of the poem. The word or phrase in each line of the poem is related to the word topic.

For example, here’s an acrostic poem that a student wrote:

Always crunchy and juicy
Pick your favourite type
Pretty blossoms in the spring
Love making applesauce
Eat them everyday

After doing lots of learning about good food, you can write an acrostic poem to capture what you know about a topic. What are you waiting for?

Write about
Really
Interesting
Topics related to
Eating and food
