Lewistown School District Awarded for Healthy BreakfastMonday, October 29, 2012, 1:22 pm
Three schools in the Lewistown School District are receiving statewide recognition for their exceptional school breakfast program through the Healthier Montana Menu Challenge Award Program. Garfield School, Highland Park School and Lewis and Clark School join five other Montana schools that have received this prestigious school breakfast award since 2008.
Lewistown School District serves 200 breakfast meals every day and Cindy Giese, School Food Service Director, and her staff work hard to prepare fresh, healthy meals. School breakfast includes fresh fruit, freshly baked bread items, lean proteins, low fat dairy foods and healthy cereal choices. Lewistown students have been enjoying whole grain foods for years thanks to the school food service staff’s baking skills and willingness to try new recipes. Lewistown Schools place a high priority on offering breakfast to all students, elementary through high school, and have designed breakfast bars which allow students choices and quick service.
Lewistown School District received a $500.00 monetary award and each school will receive an award certificate and banner. The district celebrated the awards on October 12, 2012.
