Greetings, 
I've reviewed the materials (most them seemed geared Food Service 
staff) and have found few that were helpful. see Facebook that Channel talking about the proposed boycott (must slow news day). The majority comments are -again -political. composing parent fact sheet entitled *D.C. Everest School Meal 
Requirements*--Get the Facts.* thought was this could mailed/emailed High School parents with 
cover letter that address the boycott (briefly). The above-noted fact sheet 
could also posted the website and sent out other district parents needed. Basically, it's primer the regulations and what constitutes "meal" -as well why it's important model healthy eating behaviors. have 930 conference call have prep for complete, and then will 
work tidying drafts and sending them your way for review. 
Overall, Chris and feel that going forward important 
proactive sharing what the District doing the 
health/wellness/nutrition front and will utilize digital platforms 
so. 
Back soon!

Michelle, 
Thanks for the excellent resource for our district. I've made couple clarifications. The HHFKA has jargon that very specific menu planning. This what students see when make them aware what available them. Wanted sure stayed consistent. 
Made the same type changes the letter. 
I've also included the current map for the School Nutrition and Wellness website that talked about.

> Michelle Rothmeyer 11/7/2014 :50 > Greetings. 
Attached the parent letter well the Fact Sheet for your review. 
leave you decide you want send the parent letter (and 
whom: entire district? high school parents?). thoughts concerning the 
parent letter are this: show support for students actively trying take role legislation they feel impacts them. admirable, not exactly using 
the best means and resources out there. acknowledging the boycott are 
being transparent and not "walking away" from issue. That said, the 
final paragraph makes clear that there are other steps students are 
encouraged and able take when they feel there issue that needs addressed. encourage them read the enclosed fact sheet and *get informed*. Hopefully this spurs conversations between students and parents. Are students taking advantage the entire-entree price? not, why not? etc. show support for the intent the HHFKA while acknowledging that the District proactive addressing the challenges presents. invite students form the Student Nutrition Advisory Council. 

(note: THEY have step forward and form the council. The school can put 
out materials and morning announcement encouraging students form the 
council. Let them take responsibility for getting informed, forming 

council and maintaining it. Great life lesson that gathers student input 
the USDA and DPI need.) Here are giving students forum voice their concerns and get involved. We're not burying the issue. 
Chris, please carefully review the Fact Sheet. pulled the information from the attached resources list. Also, Chris, there decent food services website example noted here. While it's "ugly", has some decent key points that can work into the website. 
For your review. don't know when Kris will able review this, please advise next steps. Fri, Nov 2014 10:48 AM, Chris Welsh wrote:

D.C. Everest students speaking out about Obama school Lunch initiative 
Monday, November 03, 2014 4:21 a.m. CST Larey Lee 

SCHOFIELD, Wis. (WSAU)--Many political observers say the Obama policies are the ballot tomorrow. One those policies won't election topic, but generating large number unhappy future voters. 
It's the program for school lunches pushed First Lady Michelle Obama called the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, which Everest senior Meghan Hellrood says neither healthy hunger free. "We have three lunch periods, but have calorie regulations now our lunches, students cannot take much food they used able to, but the whole Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act put restrictions calories. The whole point was get healthier foods, but instead healthier foods, we're getting smaller portions more processed foods." 
Hellrood organizing PackA-Bag day boycott the Everest lunclies November 13th. Since posters are promptly taken down, Hellrood has relied word mouth and social media spread the word. 
The national program requires participating schools regulate how many calories kids consume. Hellrood says the problem students are getting lower quality lunch than they used to, and they're still hungry after lunch. "They have pack more food themselves along with the school food. So, they're getting two meals. One from school but they're bringing the other one." 
The calorie restrictions have changed the way schools serve food, and how they hand out condiment packages. "Now, we're even getting 
restricted with our mayo packets and barbeque sauce packets, that can't even take two packages mayo because that's too many calories, I'm handing out mayo." 
Hellrood says students appreciate the lunch staff and the administration, but hoping the school board steps and dumps the First Lady's 
school lunch initiative. "We love our school, but it's just realize they're being told what serve us, know it's not their fault. (but) 
The school, like administiation, does choose comply with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act, don't have but they get government 
funding for it, too. Every meal that complies with the act, think it's like six cents per meal from the government." 
Another problem with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act menus waste. Hellrood says some students are choosing hungry instead eating the lower quality processed food, more being thrown away. She says the piicing the lunches attempt get students eat everything offered. "For meal, make meal cost, you need get milk, fruit, and the main entree, and you not choose fruit, they will charge you more for just the milk and the main entree. you don't get the milk, but you still get the main tree and fruit, they'll still charge you more." of2 11/2112014 8:25

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act also affecting one the school's se1vice clubs. DECA students operate store, and Hell rood says their 
sales are way down because restrictions what they can sell school grounds. "They're really upset with because they used able sell all these, like chips and sodas after school, but now they can't. They've lost much money because they can't sell pretty much 
anything that they initially started with." 
Several students convenience stores fast food sites after school but before activities they can fill up, time permits. 
Hellrood says the Obama guidelines might work for elementa1y age students, but everyone she knows unhappy with the changes. I'm 4-11 and '"
