FHSD Recognizes School Nutrition Employees May 1-5

Between preparing healthy food, adhering to strict nutrition standards, navigating student food allergies, and offering service with a smile, Francis Howell School District (FHSD) nutrition employees have a lot on their plate. To celebrate their hard work and commitment, FHSD schools will celebrate School Nutrition Employee Week during May 1-5, 2017.

Serving more than 11,000 student meals each day, FHSD and our food service provider, Sodexo, have made a commitment to preparing healthy school meals and promoting good nutrition habits. Our schools provide students with quality food and nutrition knowledge, skills, and the values they will need for a healthy body and healthy mind. For many children, school lunch is the most important and nutrient-rich meal of their day.

Our school nutrition employees balance many roles and follow numerous federal, state, and local regulations to ensure safe and healthy meals. In fact, federal nutrition standards ensure that every school lunch offers students a well-balanced meal offering low-fat or fat-free milk, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. School meals must also meet limits on calories, sodium, and unhealthy fats.

Thanks to the men and women who prepare and serve school meals, so our children have the nutritious food they need to meet their educational and physical potential.
