Another Year of Wellness In The Schools

Our Cook for Kids program works with schools to feed kids real food. Wellness In The Schools (WITS) Chefs who are trained culinary graduates work with schools including our own to transform the cafeteria menu, train school staff and provide nutrition education to students. We are lucky to be part of this program at PS 217!

Our daily goal is for students to return to class after lunch and recess ready to focus and learn. Our long-term goal is to teach children healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

We also are the recipients of a new Asphalt Green Grant. Asphalt Green’s Recess Enhancement Program (REP) supports a trained staff at our school two days a week to support recreation and play with K-2 graders.
