live.  We enrich the lives of our students and the communities we live through socially responsible and sustainability best practices.  We are planting the seeds of health and wellness.​

We share our knowledge of the life-enhancing benefits of good nutrition with students, our families and our communities.   In order to make good decisions about the foods they eat, we believe that students need two things: healthy options and the insight to choose wisely. We go beyond the café with our nutrition education programs, setting the stage for smart dining decisions that will pave the way for a lifetime of success and well-being.​

Simply Good  

Simply Good is an annual food and nutrition education program that expands students’ knowledge of food to include nutrition facts, sustainability information and even food preparation tips.

This program aims to move the conversation about food from the cafeteria to the classroom, hallways, homes and the community. Student awareness of food is often very limited to their own personal experiences. Through special events, activities and special food focuses, we educate students about the importance of eating healthy meals, while also introducing a variety of new ingredients that broaden their food horizons. Monthly activities highlight seasonal and nutrient-rich foods such as red and orange vegetables in the Fall and leafy green and cruciferous vegetables in the Spring to engage students around healthful eating and living.​
