Adams 14 to provide No Cost Meals for 2009-10
(COMMERCE CITY, CO – October 12, 2009) Adams 14 today announced that it will provide No Cost Meals to students through its breakfast and lunch programs. The announcement coincides with National School Lunch Week, October 12 through 16.
“Thanks to the efforts of parents, students and staff, we had a high return rate with our applications this year,” said Chief Operations Officer Sandy Mutchler. As a result, Adams 14 will extend no cost meals to all students.
School breakfast and lunch programs enhance children's learning abilities by contributing to their physical and mental well being. Studies have shown that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and discipline problems and are more attentive in class. “We hope our students take advantage of the no cost breakfast and lunch programs this year,” said Nutrition Services Manager Cindy Veney.
Adams 14 Nutrition Services is a key player in the District’s wellness program. Adams 14 believes that providing healthy meals for students increases parent and student satisfaction, one of the District’s strategic priorities.
