It is no secret that our kids should be eating more wholesome foods and less processed meats and animal products, but why then is this not reflected on the menus of our school cafeterias? Individuals around the country are working to bring awareness of healthier eating and more plant-based menus into school communities. Some take a more top-down approach, affecting policy and fighting for change on an administrative level, while others have established a more grass-roots effort, educating food service directors, parents, teachers and students and empowering them to add plant-based options which are more conducive to health, growth and learning. This diverse panel will showcase a variety of approaches with the intention of fostering deeper education and collaboration between all those who are working on this important issue.
