School Lunch Report Card


School Lunch Report Card We send our children to school every day in hopes of filling their minds with important education but how much do we think about what fills their stomachs? The folks at the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine think about it a lot and they test school systems around the country for the nutritional value of their menus. The results are not always promising. We'll check on our own area schools and hear from a nearby school system that serves award winning menus. Grab your lunch tray and join us.
