SAD61 Introduces New School Lunch Menu and Makes Eating Healthy Easier for Students

More Vegetables, Fruits and Whole Grain Options Being Served Up


BRIDGTON, Maine —Feb. 14, 2011 — Since 1946 when the National School Lunch Program was first passed by Congress, kids across the country have been offered a hot meal each day at school. However, as national overweight and obesity rates increase, many schools across the United States are trying to improve their lunch offerings and provide healthier meals to help students eat better and maintain healthier weights. Maine School Administrative District 61 (SAD 61) has made over its school lunch menu so students have easier access to healthy food selections.

Children who attend Songo Locks School, Sebago Elementary School, Stevens Brook Elementary School, Lake Region Middle School and Lake Region High School are already benefitting from the new menu. This is thanks to SAD 61’s Foodservice Director, Andy Madura, and his staff along with Courtney Kennedy, the district’s new School Health Coordinator.

STATEWIDE ORGANIZATIONS RECOGNIZE TEEN DATING VIOLENCE PREVENTION & AWARENESS MONTH

Every year, thousands of teenagers across the State of Maine experience dating violence.  February is Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Month, a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in youth relationships and promote programs that focus on prevention. The Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence and the Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault are calling on Mainers to help recognize this important month, not only for youth in Maine, but for communities statewide.

Dating violence is “controlling, abusive, and aggressive behavior in a romantic relationship. It occurs in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships and can include verbal, physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, or a combination of these behaviors.”  Dating violence often starts with what may seem like minor behavior, such as teasing and name calling.
