Healthy Food Checklists & Tools

Use the checklists, audit tools, action project ideas, and lesson plans to engage your students, teachers, parents, and staff in increasing the amounts of healthy, fresh, organic, and locally-sourced food, and tracking progress at your school. These files are downloadable MS-Word and Excel files.
