Mood Boost-- Locally Grown, Farm Fresh

Elementary Students experienced a fun new concept called Mood Boost.

Designed to help students make the connection between what they eat and how they feel, Mood Boost brings new lunch menus, fun activities, and a collection of characters called “Moodies” into the cafeteria.

We used locally sourced carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, and apples from Walldingfield Farm and Starlight Gardens in the Mood Boost recipes.

Character Moodies -- Strong, Happy, Calm, Smart, Confident, Alert

WIS Rolls out Global Eats

Over the month of February, students ‘traveled’ with their taste buds to Mexico, China, India, and Italy.

Each week featured multiple chef-developed, authentic dishes from each of these world cuisines.

Students stamped passports as they ventured into new tastes.
