Rethinking School Lunch Committee Plans Visioning Workshop for October

More than 40 community members and organizations attended the Rethinking School Lunch community discussion organized in February 2011 by ACHIEVE (Action Communities for Health Innovation and EnVironmental ChangE).

 As a result of the community discussion, those present were energized and committed to planning and participating in a visioning process to develop a Rethinking School Lunch New Mexico initiative (RSL New Mexico). The following organizations have acted as the core committee in beginning this visioning process:

Action Communities for Health Innovation and Environmental Change (ACHIEVE):
APS Physical Activity & Nutrition Advisory Council (PANAC)
Mid Region Council of Governments Agriculture Collaborative (MRCOG)
New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger
APS Growing Gardens Team

The RSL New Mexico committee is planning a visioning workshop for early Fall 2011.

DATE: October 22nd

WHERE: Harwood Art Center, Albuquerque

Please save the date. More details will be coming soon!
In the meantime, the committee has developed a community survey to collect information that will be used to help guide the visioning workshop and the overall goals of RSL New Mexico initiative. Parents, teachers, school administration, and community members are invited to complete this survey, which will take only between 5 to 15 minutes to complete.

The Rethinking School Lunch NM initiative is currently comprised of individuals and agencies in Albuquerque interested in improving options, programs, and educational opportunities related to food in New Mexico schools. The list of collaborators and links to their websites will be available at the end of the survey
