"Fresh Veggie and Fruit Bar at Manaugh Elementary"!! The Students are excited by the choices of local fruit and veggies! The choices vary upon availability of produce. One of Nutrition Services goals is to feed students healthy, nutritious meals everyday. Along with the HHFKA*, we hope to improve the eating habits of students, so they can make healthy choices through the course of their lifetime.
Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act
Improving child nutrition is the focal point of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The legislation authorizes funding and sets policy for USDA's core child nutrition programs: the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), the Summer Food Service Program, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act allows USDA, for the first time in over 30 years, opportunity to make real reforms to the school lunch and breakfast programs by improving the critical nutrition and hunger safety net for millions of children.
Re-1 Food Services is reducing it's carbon footprint by recycling cardboard boxes from all the school kitchens. 2 years ago we removed the 5 compartment styrofoam trays from CMS and replaced them with recycled plastic washable trays. We also use molded fiber cafeteria trays made from recycled material and are 100% compostable at Lewis-Arriola and Pleasant View.
