School lunches have changed over the past decade, and an upcoming event in Community Unit School District 300 is designed to showcase just how.
District 300 parents, students, staff, and community members are invited to attend the district's first-ever series of Health & Wellness Fairs, in partnership with ARAMARK food service. The fairs will take place in Hampshire on Feb. 21, Carpentersville on March 5, and Algonquin on March 19.
Admission is free, and each family-friendly fair will start with a screening of the highly entertaining movie about fast food in America, called "Super Size Me" (rated PG). The free film screening will be at 5 p.m., and the rest of the fair activities will run from 6 to 8 p.m.
The events will offer parents and students a screening of the documentary Super Size Me, highlighting the poor nutrition of fast-food choices, at 5 p.m. Other activities, including a tasting of actual foods served in the district's lunch program, and opportunities for pertussis vaccination and talks with area organizations, will be available from 6 to 8 p.m.Click here for more information!
