We are pleased to announce that Caroline County Public Schools Nutrition Services Department has been awarded nearly $14,000 from the FY 2018 National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Equipment Assistance Grant by the USDA.
These funds will be used to purchase a new steamer for Caroline Middle School. Steamers are a great way to prepare healthy meals that meet the updated meal patterns.
World School Milk Day (WSMD), celebrated annually on the last Wednesday of September, is an exciting day full of activities that highlight the health benefits and value of milk in schools.
WSMD is an engaging way to teach students about the importance of drinking milk as part of a healthy, balanced diet with an emphasis on milk as an excellent source of vitamins and minerals that kids need to stay alert and ready to learn.
Celebrating its 19th year, the event has grown to be celebrated in more than 40 countries with continued growth each year. WSMD brings attention to school milk and allows all countries to celebrate school milk on the same day. WSMD is sponsored by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.
