Access to Healthy Foods

Our school got a large refrigerator that has been placed in the lunchroom. It is a milk fridge that has a glass door so the foods inside are easily seen. Kids who are hungry, missed a meal, or just need a boost are able to take out a healthy snack to energize themselves. We believe kids who are not fighting hunger are able to concentrate and focus better in school!

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Once our fruit and vegetable program ended, access to healthy foods was harder to obtain. Our lunchroom staff now helps fill it with foods.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Healthy kids are happy kids!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Kids who are able to easily access food have full bellies and are aware of what foods are good for them. They also are getting the nourishment they need.
