HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms (HUSSC: SL)

HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms is open to all schools participating in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program. We recognize that changing the school nutrition environment takes time and celebrate both the gradual changes and big successes of schools working diligently to help children eat more healthfully and be more physically active.

Schools can submit an application at any time during the year for a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Gold of Distinction level award.

Schools may submit applications for the HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms by US mail or online. Recipients of the Alliance for a Healthier Generations Healthy Schools Program National Recognition Award may also be eligible for a streamlined application process.

Congratulations to Boulder Valley School District!
