Congratulations to John McCrossin and the food services team for being selected to receive a $5,000 School Nutrition grant from the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department! The purpose of the grant is to implement cafeteria and school wide healthy eating promotions, fund staffing time review and revise district policies and practices, and to implement strategies to meet the USDA meal pattern standards.

A big portion of our grant will be used for release time for our kitchen staff and PE teacher to start conversations on promotion of nutrition and activity. 

To help us kickoff the new USDA meal pattern standards Trojan Digital Media students recently made this video for school's to use across the district: http://vimeo.com/50104606.
