Jeff Teaching Nutrition at School

The School Nutrition Education Program is federally funded by USDA and administered by the University of California Cooperative Extension to provide nutrition education to schools where at least 50% of students are eligible for free or reduced school lunches. This is done by providing teachers with free curricula that enhance their efforts to teach students about healthy lifestyle practices. The curricula are aligned with the California Content Standards.
