Farm to School Initiative

Food and nutrition are popular subjects at MHS. The school has been working hard to improve school food choices and create a healthy and happy cafeteria experience for all students. School Lunch Boston is the official blog of Boston Public Schools Department of Food & Nutrition Services (FNS). On the website, families can find monthly menus, nutrition news, recipes and other information.

Farm to School Initiative Hummus and Carrots!

Principal Ayla Gavins recently wrote an entire MHS Newsletter article about food choices in the cafeteria. In it she mentioned the BPS Farm to School Initiative, a great program that brings local produce into BPS school cafeterias. This week, freshly-made hummus and carrots will be offered as an option in the cafeteria at lunchtime. The healthy snack comes with a recipe and information sheet about the ingredients.
