School Nutrition Across MCS

Wellness Program

In 2010, Congress passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (Sec. 204 of Public Law 111-296), and added new provisions for local school wellness policies related to implementation, evaluation, and publicly reporting on progress of local school wellness policies. Our district's Wellness Policy EEE drives our devotion in getting involved with local communities and programs that promote healthy lifestyles through nutrition education.
