SD Unified Working To Make School Lunches Healthier

Kudos to your efforts. Last year I called Mr. Petill's office but received no response: I wanted to comment on the profound waste in the lunch program, particularly the milk, which is REQUIRED in all the federal lunch program meals: my son won't drink it (likes 2%, not 1%) and was forced to simply throw away milk everyday (I also wrote my congresswoman regarding this problem). We have switched to PB&J from home to keep from encouraging the institutionalized waste and the disrespect for food this condones. Any suggestions? I'm sure the wasted money could be put to healthier choices for kids!
