W.L.. McLeod had their community engagement luncheon on June 14 to spark awareness in the community of their intent to switch to a healthier lunch menu for their students.

The farm to school program is an effort to reduce bad eating habits and encourage healthy eating habits by taking advantage of community farming and the benefits it does not only for the community but for your children’s overall health.

Michelle Racher, PAC vice chair feels they received a positive response from the community during the luncheon.

“The conversations that took place on June 14 reinforced that we are on the right track with this project and that it is important and relevant,” she said.

“The community involvement and partnerships with farmers connecting to the school and children is what makes this such an amazing concept.”
