Ag Day 2018

We are excited to introduce Penelope. She is the new mascot for CCPS Nutrition Services Department. As part of our Ag Day celebration Penelope visited  schools to be introduced to students and staff.

 

Our department donated the book  “These Bees Count!” by Alison Formento to each school library. Several Agriculture students from Caroline High School visited our elementary schools to read this book to students.

 

 

 

 

 

National Nutrition Month

nnm

National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and celebrated annually in March . The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This years theme for National Nutrition Month® encourages everyone to realize the numerous benefits healthy eating habits offer, but it also urges everyone to find ways to cut back on food waste. Learning how to manage food resources will help you “Go Further with Food”, while saving both nutrients and money.
