Project Lunchbox is GROWING!!!

Over the past few years, you may have noticed that school food service programs have been able to focus more on offering healthier alternatives.   This is so exciting to me since PROJECT LUNCHBOX:  LET’S EAT! is all about providing upper elementary school students with the knowledge to explore these types of food choices while further developing their palates.

One of the “wishes” I had when creating this project was to work with my local school food services department to determine if some of my recipes could be served in the cafeteria, and I am VERY HAPPY to report that my wish is coming true!  A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of meeting with the Director of Nutrition Services for that school.  The Director was very supportive of my ideas, and I am thrilled to announce that the cafeteria will serve Project Lunchbox’s Homemade Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette NEXT WEEK!

I am definitely beyond excited that my project is able to be a part of all the positive change that is occurring in school food service programs.  I’m counting down the days to next week and am hoping that this may be the first of more Project Lunchbox recipes served in the cafeteria!

Thanks for reading…I couldn’t think of a better group of people to share this fabulous news with.

Until Next Week…Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,

Katie 🙂
