The President's signing of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act 2010
Improves Nutrition and Focuses on Reducing Childhood Obesity
Proposed Elementary Meals – Sample Menu ...

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act is a big step in the right direction. Here are just a few things this legislation will do:

  1. 115,000 more students will have access to school meal programs. This bill will also reduce paperwork, making it easier for parents to enroll their children in these programs.
  2. Nutritional standards will help ensure that our kids have access to healthy food options.
  3. Communities and schools will receive assistance in setting up local farm-to-school networks to ensure that more fresh local foods are used in school meals.

Grant brings veggies to Plainfield

Plainfield School was awarded a Illinois State Board of Education grant to promote nutrition through fresh fruits and vegetables. The grant's goal is to emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables only and to expose children to fruits and vegetables they might not ordinarily be able to get.

Plainfield Elementary School - Fruits and Vegetable Grant

Each school day, about 350 children, first through fifth grade, receive a free fruit or vegetable snack. The snacks are secured through District 62’s lunch provider, Arbor. Staple snacks include carrots, bananas, and apples. At other times, snacks are fruits that are less familiar to students, such as jicama (cactus), radishes, and green peppers.

The Small Farms/School Meals Initiative is an important step toward improving both the economic stability of small farmers and the long-term health of children in our school systems. The farmers are able to sell fresh produce to local schools for use in their meal programs, and children get the benefit of adding fresh fruits and vegetables to their diets. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved.
