The School Board of Trustees recognizes the important connection between a healthy diet, physical activity, environmental and nutrition education and a student's ability to learn effectively and achieve high standards in school.
The Board also recognizes the school's role, as part of the larger community, to promote family health, sustainable agriculture and environmental restoration. The School Board of Trustees recognizes that preparing and eating a meal together is a fundamental experience for all peoples; a primary way to nurture and celebrate our cultural diversity and an excellent bridge for building friendships and inter-generational bonds.
