Partnerships: The Center for Ecoliteracy

The Center for Ecoliteracy is a strong supporter of healthier school meals. They have conducted hands-on trainings for food service staff using their "Cooking with California Kids" cookbook. Their Web site contains tools for demonstrating to decision makers that high-quality, appealing school meals contribute importantly to academic achievement and student health - and can also be good for district finances.
