“We use only antibiotic/hormone-free beef and chicken,” he said. “We started a Farm to School group to help us get more locally produced foods into the schools.”

So awesome. Now what about the rest of the districts?

I work at a D-11 school and I checked out the lunch today - whole wheat crust on that pizza - but the kids said the food was good and they didn't complain.

I think this is terrific! I think all schools should make as many switches as they can to make the food as healthy as possible.

Mrs Maynerd works in a D-11 school, and has quite the opposite reaction from her kids. Most of them won't touch the healthy food.

Because they are being fed the bad stuff at home and do not know what healthy and unhealthy is! Often at the grocery store I have to tell the young guys at check-out what the name of the vegetable is... we are not talking about fancy vegetables... veggies like leek, rhubarb, fennel, .. At school my kids have been asked whether their sandwiches have mold (because I placed some sprouts in them) I think we need to start educating the parents.. so, that they can make the changes at home too!

Same here. My boys call their D20 school lunch, "gross." Just one look at their menu I can see why. Just incredible that they'd feed so much greasy junk to the kids. I pack lunch for my boys now. Kudos to D11!!
