THE SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM

The transformation of the lunch program is the centerpiece of the Edible Schoolyard program at LCW. The ultimate goal is to wean children from their three basic food groups—fat, sugar, and salt—
and to teach them to eat and like seasonal, farm-fresh organic food.  

The program seeks to build the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating, sustainable living, and building community wherever our children go. Hot lunch at LCW costs between $5-6 a day and is comprehensive - all children take part.

The lunches are made using seasonal, organic produce from the school garden and local farm. All of this is accomplished with the help of a group of trained parent volunteers. Vegetarian and vegan meals are provided upon request.

LCW aims to make school lunch part of the curriculum. Children gather around tables sharing food and remembering that offering food is also caring.
