Why do we have a Wellness Committee/Policy?
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 made significant changes to the federal school lunch program, including setting new nutrition standards and promoting student wellness. Districts are required to establish wellness policies, designate officials to ensure policy compliance, encourage public comment and input, and assess the district’s progress made in attaining wellness goals.
