students at lunchJeffco Public Schools announces the formation of a new task force: Food & Nutrition Services Task Force is seeking community members, parents, staff, and high school students to participate.

Jeffco Public Schools wishes to examine current and best/next practices for providing healthy and nutritious meals for students. In addition to examining nutrition topics, food preparation, and appeal to students, we also want to explore how our food service operations could make less of an environmental impact. There are regulatory requirements and financial considerations in this work. Toward that end, the district is establishing the Food & Nutrition Services Task Force to hold a representative community conversation regarding school nutrition and food-related topics.

The Task Force shall include up to 20 members, appointed by the Superintendent. Interested parties including community members, parents, students, and staff are invited to apply to participate on the Task Force. Jeffco Public Schools staff will evaluate applications to create a balanced and representative group considering backgrounds, geographic representation, connections to different ages of students, connections to the food service industry, and any special areas of expertise that might be helpful to the Task Force. Please apply today if interested in participating in this important work.

Applications are due November 15, 2018. The Task Force will meet and work December 2018 through approximately August 2019. Recommendations will be presented to the Superintendent in the fall of 2019.
