Oregon Schools Mostly Stick With Healthy Lunches

Lost revenue and grumbling children haven’t swayed Oregon from the menu changes made under the National School Lunch Program.

The Statesman Journal reports that all the state’s public schools are sticking with more whole grains, fruits and vegetables this school year, even as some districts across the country opt out.

School officials in Salem say they’ve lost money on the program, but are coming back this year with revised menus geared more toward what children like.

Horizon Christian School in Hood River and Portland schools Central City Concern, Oregon Outreach and Crossroads Christian School all chose to leave the program.
