New Agtivist: Fixing school lunch in the nation’s capitol

New Agtivist: Fixing school lunch in the nation’s capitol

Almost every school in Washington, D.C., is now serving [at least one] local food for breakfast or lunch every day, partly because of the extra five-cent financial incentive that schools receive for doing so from the Healthy Schools Act. Schools are also meeting higher nutrition standards, giving students more time to eat lunch, extending the amount of physical activity they do each day, and serving breakfast in the classroom (to increase participation rates). The act also created a school garden specialist position, and a garden grant program to help schools start and maintain their gardens. I know a dozen schools that were able to either take their garden to the next level, or start a new garden as a direct result of the funding provided by the act.
