Grab and Go Greatness

With high numbers of free and reduced meal students at Lincoln High and low school lunch participation, the Nutrition Services staff decided to partner with Family and Consumer Science staff to put together a grab and go meal option. This option allows students to get a lunch and take it out of the building, to a remote location to eat with friends or to have during club meetings which often occur during the lunch period. Students helped by coming up with a school branded name- Links Lunchbox. Students then made signs to advertise the new lunchbox options and posted them around the building. 

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

School nutrition services staff have bought into the idea and are now making the lunchbox's weekly to accommodate the demand. They are well received and many students are even selecting them for breakfast which helps to get more student breakfasts as well!
