Welcome March! Days are getting longer, and soon spring will be here! This month, we celebrate National Nutrition Month in Hockinson. We will take part in our final district wellness committee meeting of the year this month and hopefully, some staff members will invite us into their classrooms to share some nutrition education and cooking demonstrations. While our day-to-day work is about serving up breakfasts and lunches to Hockinson students, our passion lies in making sure students grow into good, informed eaters who try new things and who think about the food they choose to consume - where it came from and how it helps their bodies grow and learn.
Stop by and share a meal with your student, or give me a call if you'd like to talk about our meal program. My office is in the high school, and I'm always glad to speak with parents and students about our program and the work we do in our schools and in our community.
Thank you as always for letting us help to nourish Hockinson's children.
