HEALTHY SCHOOL FOOD

CWE_w Healthy_Food_SchoolsIncrease access to fruits and vegetables while decreasing access to foods high in sodium, saturated fat, and added sugars for student and staff at all public school districts and Crosslake Community School in Crow Wing County. Over the long term we will measure success by showing lower obesity rates in our school aged children as well as adults, as these lifestyle changes, will carry over into their own home lives, and into their own families. To get involved in this effort contact: Arlene Jones
