Schools are getting fresh new features in their lunch rooms thanks
and the United Fresh Produce
Association. Beginning this month, Carson School, John P. Parker School,
Montessori and the Academy of World
Languages will have chef salad bars for students who want something
different for lunch.
Chiquita and the United Fresh Produce
Association have made a three-year commitment to helping Cincinnati Public
Schools have as many salad bars available to students as possible.
This is the baseline year of that commitment.
"I love the idea of a salad bar in every school, and I want to thank Chiquita for helping to make that a reality, said CPS Superintendent Mary Ronan. "By encouraging our students to make salads for lunch with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, we'll be teaching healthy eating habits that will keep students alert in classes as serve them well all their lives."
