Students help craft Healthy Meals menu


Good health is critical for children to stay in and succeed in school. Our Healthy Meals program works to ensure every child has access to nutritious meals so they can focus on learning.

As we looked to make menu updates, we figured we might as well go right to the source – the kids – and have them help Davis Joint Unified School District decide what goes on our Healthy Meals menus. Over the last month, we’ve been working with various sites to have the kids do taste testing.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s an inside look into the tastings:

The children were so excited to participate in the tastings and have their voices heard. Getting the students involved in crafting the menu allows them to be more invested in the meals. It is our hope that this encourages more children to partake in our healthy meal program so that we can keep more kids on track in school.

Your financial support ensures that programs like Healthy Meals continue to grow and help more kids and families in our region. Give today.
