Volunteers sought for School Food and Nutrition Task Force

Posted

Jeffco Public Schools announced Oct. 5 the formation of a new task force: Food and Nutrition Services.

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

Task Force membership 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.

Applications are due Nov. 15. To apply online, visit goo.gl/forms/Fk8QACRYVo9yhXNj1. Applicants will be notified of status by Dec. 1.

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.
