Healthy Snack Program
Our produce-based snack program is a completely waste free program. Seven years ago when we made the move to a produce-based snack, we had both nutrition and waste in mind:
  • produce is purchased in bulk and is delivered in cardboard boxes, which we recycle.
  • occasional produce (strawberries, baby tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, raisins) arrive in clam shells or plastic, which also get recycled.
  • only organic produce is purchased (so no pesticides, herbicide, fungicides), and some of our produce is grown biodynamically.  
  • almost all of our produce is grown locally (within 150 miles, bananas the exception), cutting down on fossil fuels.  
  • the plastic bins we have re-used since day one of the program.  
  • leftovers are taken home by families or are composted. 

A HUGE thank you to the PTA, teachers, staff, and families for supporting our very sustainable snack program.

Best,
