Real Food for Kids - Montgomery - a project of the Chesapeake Institute for Local Sustainable Food and Agriculture
Real Food For Kids - Montgomery is a grass-roots, parent and student advocacy group promoting whole, delicious, fresh and nutrient-rich foods in the Montgomery County, Maryland Public Schools.
Our mission is to advocate for fresh, whole and nutrient-rich foods in Montgomery County Public Schools, to reduce the availability of foods that are low in nutritional value, and to increase the availability of local and sustainable foods. We seek to collaborate with MCPS and other community stakeholders, recognizing that wholesome food is an educational investment that leads to academic success, improved behavior, and better health outcomes. We believe that improving students' food options is a critical part of MCPS' commitment to support the whole child.
