School Food Program

We continue to work with OUSD Food Service to try to get as much seasonal, fresh and local produce into all school meals and eliminate highly processed foods, realizing current budgetary and logistical constraints. We are also working to minimize food waste and landfill waste associated with school food service.

Food For Thought helped to develop a comprehensive Wellness Policy, adopted by the OUSD School Board in 2006 and updated in 2015. This policy helps guide school food service, physical education, and other aspects of school life to promote a healthy environment and provide healthy choices for our students.
