Summer Food Programs
Meet Up and Eat Up provides free nutritious meals to children, up to age 18, who may need meals over summer break.
The Englehardt (Lowell) Library also has meals for children June 5th - August 11th. They will be passing out lunches Monday-Friday from 12:30pm to 1:00pm. This will be running the same time as their summer reading programs.
The Board recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of the District's students. Furthermore, research concludes that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Moreover, schools can play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through the schools' meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.
The Board, however, believes this effort to support the students' development of healthy behaviors and habits with regard to eating and exercise cannot be accomplished by the schools alone. It will be necessary for not only the staff, but also parents and the public at large to be involved in a community-wide effort to promote, support, and model such healthy behaviors and habits.
We invite and welcome your input in this process. Please email or call the Food Service Director (contact information to the right) to share your ideas.
