To acknowledge your achievement, each school will receive a HUSSC award plaque, a banner to display, and a small monetary incentive award ($500 for the Bronze award) for meeting HUSSC’s criteria.  Also, the name of this school will be proudly added to the HUSSC awardees list on the Team Nutrition HUSSC website.

These schools are making national news by working to support and improve the health of our children and our community. As part of their effort, healthy items are featured on their menus and physical education and activity emphasized. Their efforts are part of the HealthierUS School Challenge. 

The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program.  It supports the Let’s Move campaign by recognizing schools that are creating healthier school environments through their promotion of good nutrition and physical activity.  Sponsored by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), the initiative encourages all schools take a leadership role in helping students make healthy eating and physical activity choices that will last a lifetime. 

These schools have put in the hard work to make changes to their school nutrition environment in order to (1) improve the quality of the foods served, (2) provide students with nutrition education, and (3) provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.

Perfect Peach AwardTexas Schools recognized with the Perfect Peach Award

Magnolia ISD is proud to announce that the Texas Department Award has recognized our School Lunch Program with the Perfect Peach Award for serving Local Products with local ingredients in our celebrations of Farm Fresh Fridays.
