The Healthy Alternatives Committee

The Healthy Alternatives Committee-The purpose of the Healthy Alternatives Committee is to promote the FCPS Wellness Policy. This committee also serves as a liaison for the Real Food for Kids initiative. Real Food for Kids is committed to working in collaborative ways to increase the quantities of healthy foods in FCPS and supporting programs that educate our students and their families on making healthier lifestyle choices. This committee works closely with the Health and Safety Committee to promote Walk and Wheels Wednesdays, the Parent Programs Committee to bring in speakers to discuss topics related to healthy alternatives, and the Gardens and Courtyard Committee to support teaching our students about planting, growing, and eating healthy food.
