What is a healthy lunch?
A healthy lunch comes from whole foods. Whole foods are minimally processed and derive their nutrients from the soil; they don’t need to be "enriched," they don’t need preservatives and artificial colors. Whole food isn’t full of ingredients you can’t pronounce. At the Healthy Lunch & Lifestyle Project, we also believe that school food should come from local farms committed to organic, sustainable agricultural practices, and should be served in re-usable containers.
- Organic foods are produced without synthetic chemicals, hormones, or antibiotics that pollute our bodies and our environment.
- Sustainable agriculture=stewardship of our precious natural resources.
- Most grocery store produce has traveled 1500 miles contributing to our dependence on foreign oil and reducing our food security.
- Supporting local farmers strengthens our local economy and community.
- Each child’s school lunch creates an average of 67 pounds of waste each year
In partnership with Enterprise School District, the Healthy Lunch Program produces lunches based upon the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans published by the USDA and the Department of Health and Human Services. Lunches are made daily by our chef from fresh, whole foods, packaged in reusable containers, and delivered to our schools. This school is an equal opportunity provider. In accordance with Federal law and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, noational origin, sex, age or disability.
