The School Food Environment Grades for 2017 are nearly done!

Can you help us in the final push to get them out with a donation? We’ve seen a 70 point increase in scores from last year statewide – proving that our work is effective in bringing about positive changes to the school food.

This work is very time consuming and detailed and requires a lot of staff time. Your help in supporting this work that is changing school food statewide and in your county is appreciated. Give now via PayPal (you will see the name of our fiscal sponsor, Chesapeake institute for Local Sustainable Food and Agriculture) OR via Real Food for Kids - Montgomery's Facebook page (the organization that funds the grades' production). 

Thank you so much for your contribution!
