The most opportune moment to cement healthy eating habits during the school day is lunch! At Uplift, we celebrated National School Lunch Week with bright colors, bold flavors and balanced nutrition. A focus is on a nutritious diet will give scholars the energy to power through their day. Scholars are encouraged to start the day off with a good breakfast on campus or at home. During National School Lunch week scholars were treated with special featured items and side dishes in celebration of healthy eating.
The Uplift CNP team carefully selects nutritious food to serve our scholars across the network during lunch. In an effort to continue these habits, various Uplift schools have partnered with non-profit organizations to ensure scholars are maintaining a healthy eating lifestyle in and outside of school.
- Brighter Bites- Provides produce, recipe classes and instruction to learn healthy meal options for the home.
- Our produce program in partnership with the North Texas Food Bank provides fresh produce for a healthy at home life style.
- Blessings in a backpack – Provides supplemental food for scholars to take home over the weekend.
Through partnerships, we are able to contribute to our scholar’s nutrition every day. With Center Plate our CNP team creates a thorough lunch menu that can be downloaded here. This ensures that parents are aware of what scholars are eating throughout the day and can also provide home cooked lunches for the days scholars choose to have other options.
