Marin City school introduces new healthy lunch program

The recent test run for a organic, GMO-free-based menu was a hit for students.

Sept. 16—Chicken nuggets and pizza are out, stir fry and brown rice are in.

The students at Bayside/MLK Academy in Marin City are eating healthy this new school year thanks to a pilot program — "The Conscious Kitchen" — that uses local, organic and natural foods for campus meals.

Gone are the packaged and processed foods, with breakfasts and lunches now made daily on site by school chefs. Those same chefs go into classrooms to teach students about foods.
