Communities all across Sonoma County, California are coming together for change. No matter how you choose to participate, we all have something to give. How will you connect with our community? Mackenzie and Mary advocate for fresh organic food at Harmony School in Occidental, California.
With active participation, encouragement and support from parents, Harmony Union School District in West Sonoma County developed a wellness policy to encourage healthier food on campus. In addition, the district has committed to improve the quality of their school lunch program by preparing all meals on site, using the highest quality ingredients affordable. They developed new menus, set up the infrastructure to include garden recipes that highlight seasonal produce from the one-acre organic school garden and local farms, and eliminated from their menu any products with high fructose corn syrup.
