HCPSS Earns A+ in Healthy School Foods
HCPSS received an “A+” and was the only Maryland school system to earn an “A” on the School Food Environment Grades report last year from Healthy School Food Maryland.
HCPSS has been intentional about offering healthier food choices that students want to eat. Highlights include:
Adding fresh fruit and salad bars to all elementary schools as of this school year.
Taste testing healthy menu options with students, resulting in an increase in student meal participation.
Healthy School Food Maryland is a coalition of organizations and individuals in Maryland working for whole, real, local and safe foods for children in Maryland school cafeterias. The 2016 School Food Environment Grades is a report card on the state of school food in each Maryland public school district.
