Any information on how the 5 schools were identified and chosen? I would love to have John Baldwin (all schools, for that matter!) also serving healthier food to our kids. Is this a pilot to be expanded?
Why, Baldwin Mom, how can you think that the fine fare at Baldwin isn't healthy? After all, this month alone we've had corn dogs (but "whole grain"!), cheeseburger sliders (with extra grease so they REALLY slide), pepperoni pizza, mac & cheese, mac & cheese, and more mac & cheese, quesadillas with cheese-like substance, and the ever popular beef nachos with more cheese-like topping. How can you go wrong? Erg.... can someone hand me the de-fib!?
Seriously though, by the time they wait in line - and then get shooed outside after twelve minutes - they don't even give our kids time to eat the slop. My kid doesn't even want the school food. I pack her lunch 99% of the time.
I don't know how they chose the five school though, but do I agree with you.
As far as I understand, the five schools received grants due to a large effort by their parent communities. Gayla Moghannam, who is quoted in this article, spearheaded much of the district effort. If you go to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation website, you'll find information on how to apply for a grant for your school.
This is a pilot program that should be expanded to other schools though, at the moment, there is no timeline for the project.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
