THE POWER OF NUTRITIOUS FOOD IN SCHOOLS

The National School Lunch Program is the second-largest anti-hunger program in the country. Each day over 30 million students eat lunch at school in the United States. 22 million low-income kids rely on them. For far too many children school lunches and breakfasts are their only reliable source of food for the day. It’s important they are as nutritious as possible, giving them a chance to grow up healthy, strong and smart.

This is why we collaborate with our country’s school food professionals and support their efforts to keep highly-processed food out of meals, while increasing the amount of fresh and simply prepared foods.

TEAMING UP WITH SCHOOL FOOD PROFESSIONALS

School food professionals face incredible challenges and need support to implement their innovative efforts to get the healthiest food possible onto school menus. Lack of cooking equipment, staff training, and access to appropriate funds to afford healthier food, greatly affect what goes on the lunch tray.

By joining efforts with them, we are helping make each meal as nutritious as possible, so that children are ready to learn and reach their full potential.
