Change Your School Food

Out of more than a decade of work with school food systems, the Center for Ecoliteracy has developed a planning framework, "Rethinking School Lunch," which identifies ten aspects of school operations that relate to food change—ten pathways that allow you to begin the change process from a place that fits your resources, interests, and opportunities.

Our downloadable RSL Guide presents the case for rethinking school food along with ideas and recommendations for using this planning framework. The Center also offers a variety of other resources, including books, curriculum guides, essays, and downloadable tools, as well as seminars, consultations and presentations based on the Rethinking School Lunch framework.
