The First Lady Speaks on the HealthierUS School Challenge

Mrs. Obama quoted Director of Child Nutrition Services, Billy Reid during today's celebration.  She stated,

"But there is one thing that all of you do have in common. And I think that Billy Reid, who is the director of Nutrition Services for the Salida Union School District in California -- he put it best. This is what he said. He said, “I find myself honored to wake up every morning…and go out and feed children.” It's as simple as that -- honored. The honor of feeding our children. (Applause.) And it's that commitment, it's that kind of commitment to our children’s promise -- right? This is our future. Our promise -- the determination to help them all succeed -- that’s something you all share. It's that passion."

Present at the event from Salida Union School District were Board Members Catie Englebright and Virginia Berry, Superintendent Twila Tosh, and Principals Ana Garcia (Sisk), Jeri Passalaqua (SES), and Rex Tschetter (Dena Boer).

New Child Nutrition Website

In the coming months we will be transitioning menus and other Child Nutrition information to a new website.  It is designed to help you promote healthy habits to students that will last a lifetime.

The website will provide the stage for promoting and actively implementing the district Wellness Policy, and it will be supported with facts and figures from leading authorities around the US. It will combine and consolidate some of the best practices and resources found in School Nutrition into one convenient, image rich website for the district Food & Nutrition Department.
