Bexley Farmers' Market: August 29th

“Teaching kids how to feed themselves and how to live in a community responsibly is the center of an education.”

Alice Waters

Back to school and wondering, "What's for lunch?"

Many children consume at least half of their meals at school, and for many children, food served at school may be the only food they regularly eat. With more than 32 million children participating in the National School Lunch Programand more than 12 million participating in the School Breakfast Program, good nutrition at school is more important than ever.

Principles, teachers, school nutrition workers and parents are helping to make schools healthier places to learn by providing quality food and teaching children about the importance of nutrition and embracing a healthy active lifestyle.

Read about a mother and teacher, compelled by her own frustration with school meals, and her journey in eating school lunch every school day in 2010 just like her students. The book is Fed Up with Lunch: The School Lunch Project: How One Anonymous Teacher Revealed the Truth About School Lunches –And How We Can Change Them!
