The most basic way to nurture others and express how much they are valued.
The Food Service program at LWHS focuses on providing healthy, nutritional meals and snacks for 470 students and more than 100 faculty and staff in order to build community and model healthy eating habits and environmental stewardship. Cooked from scratch and made fresh daily, the Food Service team uses local and organic produce whenever possible. For instance, LWHS supports local produce purveyors such as Greenleaf produce that in turn work with small local farmers.
Not only are we committed to nutrition and locally grown produce, Food Service does what it can to help the environment. It has a zero waste policy, composting and recycling where possible, and not using disposable dishes or utensils. Seven years ago, Food Service stopped the sale of bottled water because of its environmental impact. The school also donates its leftovers to the Edgewood Children’s Center.
