AISD Nutrition & Food Services Join Districts Across Nation to Focus on Local Foods

Department leaders from Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services attended a Farm to School symposium hosted by the USDA in San Diego earlier this month.

The symposium focused on farm-to-school and school garden programs highlighting procurement methods and how to effectively utilize local resources.

The Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services department shared current methods and its focus for the future with other districts.

As part of the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move!, Michelle Obama is challenging everyone to #GimmeFive things they are doing to eat better, be more active and lead a healthier life style. 

The Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Service team, along with Detroit, Dallas, Chicago, Memphis, New York City, Philadelphia school districts and others, were challenged by the USDA Farm to School team to perform the #GimmeFive dance.
