Review: http://studentnutrition.cfbisd.edu is the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Elementary School Web site with a virtual cafeteria. Students choose from menu items provided for breakfast and lunch by Cathy the food service worker. A tally below the food tray automatically adds up nutritional data. While intended for the elementary schools in the Dallas area, any one can access and use the site.
The Burlington School District provides over 778,000 meals including breakfast, lunch, after-school snack and summer meals to a diverse population of over 3,600 K-12 students each year. Realizing the need to build relationships between classrooms, cafeteria, and the community, the district has been implementing a host of strategies to address food issues. These strategies include supporting teachers in developing food-related curriculum, providing professional development to food service staff, bringing children to local farms, and inviting farmers into classrooms.
