In Leon County, all elementary and middle schools are offering at least one vegetarian meal a day. Meals will include cheese quesadillas, cheese and bean burritos or cheese pizza.
Vegetables and salads will continue to be served. Farm to school, which is a national program linking farmers with schools, also provides the schools with fresh collard greens.”The superintended has always been striving for healthy meals in the schools,” says Tim Tankersley, director of Nutrition Services in Leon County.
Due to high school students eating off campus, elementary and middle school students have more choices of meals at lunch.
