NCSD will receive $4,000 for school lunch program
The Newton Community School District was recently recognized for its efforts to improve the health of its students. That recognition comes with a small financial award, as well.
Last week, the NCSD Nutrition Department was informed that each of the four schools had been recognized as meeting the HealthierUS School Challenge, a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program. Each of the four — Aurora Heights, Berg, Thomas Jefferson and Woodrow Wilson elementary schools — was identified as a “Silver Award School.”
The HealthierUS School Challenge was adopted as part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2010 “Let’s Move” campaign. It recognizes schools that are promoting good nutrition and physical activity, according to Team Nutrition Co-Director Patti Delger of the Iowa Department of Education.
