BCPS hon­ored for healthy food ser­vice

The Dundalk Eagle - - SCHOOL NEWS -

• BCPS has been awarded a “B” by Healthy School Food Mary­land, which graded the state’s 24 school dis­tricts for their 2017 school food en­vi­ron­ments. Only two dis­tricts achieved higher point to­tals and higher grades. Three other dis­tricts tied with BCPS by earn­ing 28 out of 48 points. The score BCPS achieved was sig­nif­i­cantly higher than its score (an­nounced last year) for 2016, when BCPS earned 16 out of 48 points, which equated to a C-. The school sys­tem was rec­og­nized for sev­eral ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing ser ving lo­cally-sourced foods, al­low­ing stu­dents to carry wa­ter bot­tles and for re­stric­tions on vend­ing ma­chines in schools.
