Do Your Part for the Planet - Fight Climate Change with Diet Change

Earth Day

Everyone's daily choices greatly impact the planet, and Earth Day helps inspire change and focus attention on the environment, with the hope of impacting day-to-day habits. Try celebrating Earth Day by being mindful of what you eat and making food choices that limit the harmful impact on the environment.

Here are some helpful tips that you can try:

  • Eat organic. Choosing USDA-certified organic foods reduces pollution in the air, soil, and water by ensuring reduced use of pesticides.
  • Eat locally. It’s the next best thing to growing your own. Buying foods grown close to home by local farmers helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. One study published in Environmental Science and Technology found that if the typical American family purchased local foods, greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by as much as 5% as a result of fewer emissions from production and transportation.
  • Eat fewer processed foods. In addition to creating more unnecessary packaging that pollutes, the processing and transporta- tion of packaged foods is much more energy and resource intensive than buying fresh ingredi- ents and cooking from scratch.
  • Eat lower on the food chain. That means working toward a plant-based diet. Try eating at least one vegetarian meal per week. According to the National Resources Defense Council, if all Americans eliminated just one 4-oz serving of beef per week, the reduction in global warming would be equivalent to taking 4 million to 6 million cars off the road.

Breakfast

Start your day with a healthy breakfast

Warren Consolidated School Nutrition Services Department offers a variety of easy to eat nutritional breakfasts served out of the cafeteria each morning 15 minutes prior to the start of school.

Our school breakfast program gives hardworking parents a hand in meeting their child’s nutritional needs without interrupting the school day or taking away from important learning time.

We recognize the established link between eating a healthy breakfast and academic success, and encourage all students to eat breakfast whether at home or at school. Students who routinely start their day with a good breakfast will learn healthy eating habits that will serve a lifetime.

The cost of breakfast is $1.75 in the High Schools and Middle Schools $1.50 in the Elementary Schools & Free of Charge at Holden and Siersma Elementary.

If your child qualifies for a free or reduced priced lunch, they also qualify for free or reduced priced breakfast of 30 cents.

Send Money to School

SendMoneyToSchool.com allows parents to gain access to the activity of their child's Nutrition Services account. There is no minimum requirement to make deposits online and the fees have been eliminated!! This service is now FREE to all parents. Deposits can be made at school with CASH ONLY.

Prepaying for meals is convenient for you as a parent, for your child, and for the cashiers during meal service. Monies are drawn from the account ONLY when your child eats; and if your child moves to another WCS school, the funds follow them. As a parent, you can indicate that money on account can go for meals only and ala carte purchases must be paid in cash. This is not an issue in the Elementary schools, but does come into play in the Middle and High Schools.
