SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - The Sheboygan Area School District lost 276k last year from the food service program, and the board is determined to not let that happen again. The board met as a committee of a whole Tuesday night and received an update from Chad Jensema and the new registered dietician for the district, Meredith Duchaine. Some major changes from the federal level will make the meals more healthy, requiring the district to include more fruits and vegetables in the daily meal plans.
The district will also be featuring a different vegetable every month to help the students get used to eating fresh vegetables. The food advisory committee continues to meet, and have come up with a set of goals to allow more students to eat the meals. Food service currently serves around 1 million meals a year, and they're hoping that by the end of the year, 45,000 more meals will be served to students.
