We are excited to share new materials coming from our partners, Friends of the Earth. FOE’s Climate-Friendly School Food Program helps school districts make the shift towards healthy, delicious, organic and plant-forward menus. The program provides technical assistance and marketing materials, supports student and community engagement strategies, and links school districts with the resources they need to be successful.
78% of Pajaro Valley Unified students receive free and reduced-price lunch. Increasing the amount of organic food served from its kitchens could have a major impact on our community’s health. The Organic School Food Roadmap is a practical “how-to” guide, developed to help school food service teams make organic purchasing decisions and overcome key challenges when buying organic foods.
