Calling All Nassau Co. School Food Reformers!
Do You Live in Nassau County, NY?
Are you or others at your school working to improve the quality of your school's lunch?
We'd love to meet you!
We are the Sea Cliff Elementary's nutrition committee - a part of our PCA (our name for PTA). We have been working for over a year now to improve the food in our school district and we've made some significant improvements but we want to do more. We'd like to meet with other nutrition committees or like-minded people.
Our goals for such a group include:
- improving the quality of our school's food, our cafeteria and nutrition education through networking and creating new ideas with similar groups
- creating a food purchasing co-op for schools here that is invested in healthier alternatives - our improving the existing co-op.
- passing legislation in our county to help improve school lunches including a requirement that all schools post the ingredients in their lunch to their website
If you are interested in forming a Nassau County School Food Reform Coalition, please email us or leave a comment below.
