And it's just one of many such programs popping up in districts throughout the country, as operators add supper to the list of daily meals they provide for students.

We put our hydroponic gardens in a spot where students can watch them grow, but at the same time it’s safe from being tampered with.

food snap

We started a 50-member vegan team in response to students expressing the need for more vegan options. Between our monthly meetings, students are asked to take photos of foods they eat in and out of the dining halls to give us a true picture of the kinds of things they like and the kinds of foods that cause disappointment. This exercise has sparked a lot of conversation and given us more insight into what we could do better.
