New Food and Nutrition Services truck wraps carry Farm to School message

Trucks bringing America's freshest, healthiest and best-tasting lunches to San Diego Unified elementary campuses are now wrapped with a brightly colored message about the San Diego Unified Farm to School program.

New truck sign The message is simple and clear: we serve fresh locally grown fruits and vegetable to our students.

The truck-wraps were funded through the Community Transformation Grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, through the County of San Diego. Two of the grant's goals are to communicate to our families our pledge to provide high quality, healthy meals to our students and to provide equipment and supplies to our kitchens to facilitate fresh produce preparation.

The girl holding oranges is the daughter of one of our farmers and the students at the salad bar are from Logan Elementary School.
