Two students at Lawrence Public Schools were rewarded for providing their valuable input about school lunch preferences in a K-12 student survey when they won the raffle for a $25 gift card (Emilly Martinez, grade 4) and a iPad (Liliangel Alvarado, grade 4). JSI would like to congratulate the lucky raffle winners, and thank the more than 4,000 students across the Commonwealth who participated in our survey!
At the request of the Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Office of Nutrition, Health and Safety, JSI and an expert panel are working to develop a 4-week menu cycle for schools in Massachusetts; a survey that was open through Dec. 2012 helped inform that effort. School nutrition staff, teachers, administrators and more helped to coordinate distribution of the survey throughout school districts and to encourage student participation. Every student who responded was entered into the raffle.
All Massachusetts schools will receive a copy of the completed menu project later this spring.
