The SNS Dept has received clarification from the Department of Public Health that the updated guidance for school food service allows open salad bars to be permitted during meal service. With that being said, we are pleased to announce that the cafes will start to transition from pre-bagged items to now offer a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.
We kindly ask that all students who come into the café continue sanitizing their hands before grabbing their lunch and head off to the salad bar. Please note that all café staff is trained to follow standard food safety procedures when handling salad bar food items.
Our number #1 goal is ensuring students are well-nourished. Simply incorporating salad bars as part of the school breakfast and lunch program has shown to increase fruit and vegetable consumption by an average of 1.2 servings per student per day. Given that most kids are not eating enough of these healthful foods on a given day, this is a great opportunity to help them meet their nutritional needs.
