Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

The Parent Advisory Committee serves as a vital channel of communication and collaboration between parents and Nutrition Services. Committed to fostering a healthy and supportive food environment within our schools, this committee provides a platform for parents to actively engage with our nutrition programs.

Key Objectives:

Feedback and Suggestions: The committee encourages open dialogue, enabling parents to share valuable feedback and suggestions related to school meals, menu options, and nutritional initiatives.

Menu Planning Collaboration: Members actively participate in discussions on menu planning, ensuring that diverse preferences, dietary needs, and cultural considerations are taken into account.

Nutritional Education: The committee acts as a conduit for disseminating information about the nutritional value of school meals, helping parents make informed choices for their children.

Community Outreach: Collaborating with Nutrition Services, the committee engages in community outreach initiatives to promote awareness of the importance of balanced nutrition.

Join us in making a positive impact on the nutritional experiences of our students!

PAC Meeting Schedule

The committee convenes regularly throughout the school year, virtually, to ensure ongoing communication. Meetings include updates from Nutrition Services, interactive discussions, and opportunities for parents to voice their opinions. Spanish translation is also made available.
