“Learning Mansion” project promoted by JSB. Students interact with local children in the cafeteria space of student condominiums Let’s have fun learning! “Mogumogu Shokudo” held report
JSB Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture; President: Masahiko Kondo; hereinafter referred to as the Company) As a regular event of the “Learning Mansion” project promoted by our company, “Let’s have fun learning!” Mogumogu Shokudo” was held on December 17th last year. We invited local children to the cafeteria space of a student apartment with meals provided by our company in Fukakusa, Fushimi Ward, Kyoto City.
[Overview of “Mogumogu Shokudo”]
The “Learning Mansion” project was launched in April last year with the aim of improving the human and social skills of young people by considering student condominiums as places for “learning and growth” rather than just housing. We regularly hold events mainly for resident students using the cafeteria space.
In December 2022, “Let’s have fun learning!” Mogu-Mogu Shokudo”, an event was held with the theme of interaction, dietary education, and food waste, inviting local children. Participating students will serve as volunteer staff for event management. This time, 4 student volunteers and 15 local elementary school students participated. 3 to 4 children and 1 student who plays a supporting role will work as a team.
The event was held in the style of a school class, with a timetable up to the third period. In the first period, we worked on a learning menu in which questions were asked in a quiz format so that we could learn about food education, food loss, and Kyoto vegetables in a fun way. While the students and children, who are meeting for the first time, talk about various things, they gradually become friends. I was able to learn about the difference between the expiration date and the expiration date, and about Kyoto vegetables that are locally grown but surprisingly unknown. I was a little surprised that more children than I expected knew about SDGs and food loss.
[2nd Period -Lunch-]
“I’m just starting to get hungry, so it’s time for lunch in the second period.” I will actually taste the chicken curry using Kyoto vegetables that was in the quiz earlier. Cooking staff (our group employees) who usually work in student apartments with meals at the venue have researched for this event and made a special curry and dessert with all their heart. The children’s reputation was very good, and some children quickly refilled the curry.
[3rd Period -Free Time-]
The third period is free time. You can bring your own homework, and you can ask your older brothers and sisters to help you with anything you don’t understand. They played card games, talked to each other, and asked them to look at the homework they had brought.
“It’s a pity that there’s nothing left, but this event will end in the 3rd period.” After the closing remarks, all the participants were given delicious sweet potatoes (beniharuka) as souvenirs, which are often discarded because they are malformed or small in size. It was also in the curry earlier. The children were holding souvenirs and waving goodbye to the students they became friends with today. [Image 4
[After the event]
We hope that this event will be a good opportunity for the
participants to think about food loss and the SDGs. For the students, I think they were able to experience empathy and guidance by communicating with children they had just met for the first time, building relationships in a short period of time, and having them organize discussions and ideas in line with their main themes. It was a great exchange between students and local children, who are close to each other but don’t usually get to know each other, and the event was filled with smiles.
-Impressions of Participating Students-
“I’m not usually involved with the local children, so it was nice to be able to interact with them.”
“I was wondering whether to get a job at a general company or a teaching job, so it was helpful.”
“It was satisfying to see the children gradually learn to smile and talk to each other through the program.”
“It was great to be able to interact with a variety of children and learn how to create topics and interact with children in future practical training at the university.”
