Nutrition experts will say, to do its work, the brain needs a sufficient supply of healthy fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water. Without a boost at the start of their day, young brains cannot function well. By lunchtime, most children’s bodies are depleted and in dire need of another energy provider*. A nutritious breakfast and lunch composed of lean protein sources, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables are critical to every child’s ability to successfully learn at school.
The District is committed to combat hunger by making meals designed to optimize each child’s potential. This is done by participating in the National School Lunch Program and producing nutritious meals within the guidelines established by the USDA.
