Children’s Lunch Program Aims To Bring Better Food, Health to Schools

In a California Healthline report by David Gorn, experts discussed a new school-lunch program designed to keep children healthier by producing better meals made on site with fresh, local ingredients. The California Thursdays pilot program serves lunch in 1,700 schools in 15 districts — that’s nearly one million schoolchildren in California.

The report includes comments from:

  • Karen Brown, creative director, the Berkeley-based Center for Ecoliteracy;
  • Michelle Drake, director of food and nutrition services for Elk Grove Unified School District; and
  • UC-Davis student volunteer Katie O’Malley (Gorn, California Healthline, 11/26/14)
