Let’s Go!, a program of the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center, has identified all four of our schools for achieving their 2016 Let’s Go! goals. 

This recognition program honors school lunchrooms that are implementing best practices that reduce waste and increase participation. Many of these low-to-no cost environmental changes help “nudge” students to make healthier choices. Reaching this status is no easy task! Our school nutrition staff has showcased their commitment to creating a healthy cafeteria by submitting their Smarter Lunchroom Scorecard.

The Let’s Go! program works with our schools to promote a healthy, high energy lunchroom, and we are pleased to recognize our school nutrition staff for their efforts.
