Access to Healthy Foods
At Augusta Elementary, every student drinks milk for breakfast and lunch. Our meals include all healthy choices. A large percentage of our school eats school meals for Breakfast and Lunch. Any tardy student is encouraged to get "breakfast on the go" to eat in the classroom. Our Weekend Backpack Program teamed with our local Food Pantry send food home on weekends to families in need - no questions asked - no child goes hungry! Next year we will have a school garden!!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our PTO will be assisting with our school garden.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our kitchen staff ensures our students have many good food and drink options - all kids here love milk and cheese!

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

Backpack food program for kids in need lasts all year as they get vouchers to pick up food every week all summer.
