Starting in September 2014, P.S. 40 implemented the DOE’s Alternative Lunch Menu with help from Wellness in the Schools for our school lunches. This program will feature more meals cooked from scratch, fewer processed foods and an expanded salad bar.
Some of the goals WITS tries to implement are:
- A salad bar with multiple lettuces, fresh vegetables and composed salads with dressings made from scratch.
- Fewer canned fruits and vegetables.
- At least 60% of meals offered each week made from unprocessed ingredients.
- Only whole grain pasta, bread, and rice.
