Resources

Let’s Move Let’s Move is much more than school food. This site contains information about how to promote physical activity & healthy eating in families, communities and educational settings. Be sure to check out the Take Action pages that describe ‘simple steps to success’. 

Jamie Oliver Jamie Oliver and his Food Revolution have been making waves in the school food world. His website is a great collection of information, toolkits and action plans. It’s all the basics in one place!

PEACHSF.org PEACHSFis a comprehensive school food reform website that is especially useful for parents looking to get involved. Parents Educators and Advocates Connection for Healthy School Food (PEACHSF) provides how-to guides, resources and success stories from schools across the country.

The USDA The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is the organization that oversees the National School Lunch Program. Although navigating this site can be a bit tough it contains a large bulk of excellent information on the more technical and financial aspects of school food and health promotion. 

The Center for Ecoliteracy Rethinking School Lunch‘ by the Center for Ecoliteracy is one of the most clear and concise reports that I have read on school food reform. This publication provides detailed steps towards healthier lunch is available for free on their website along with a multitude of other documents. These resources are great for parents or school employees.
