WHY: In Massachusetts, there are nearly 675,000 residents who are food insecure, meaning they cannot reliably predict where their next meal is coming from. Among them, children are of the most vulnerable School meals is one of the best ways to ensure that children are being reliably fed, and there are 400,000 students in our state who rely on school meals for half their daily nutrients. Project Bread steps in with Chefs in Schools to work with school food service staff to create nutritious school lunches, that students love to eat, leading to district-wide changes to school lunch menus. 

This school year Chefs in Schools is operating in the following districts: Boston, Pittsfield, Taunton, Worcester, Greenfield, New Bedford.
