That means that often, school lunch is the most reliable source of food that Oregon kids have. It’s a critical meal, and deserves to be as good as we can possibly make it. Luckily, schools are stepping up to the challenge. In the 2018-2019 school year, 131 school districts, serving approximately 93% of Oregon school meals, included healthy, local food in those meals.
