School FOOD Policies 

Holiday Celebrations

Offer at least half "healthier" food options (see Jeffco Guide below).

Birthdays

Starting in SY 2018/19, birthday recognition/celebrations should not include shared food (e.g. food brought in by families for students to share).

Rewards

Do not offer food as a reward for behavior or academic performance, unless approved as a need by school leadership.

Fundraising

Schools should conduct fundraisers with non-food or healthy food. Three exemptions are allowed annually. All food fundraisers must be submitted to Food and Nutrition Services.
