Wellness and Nutrition
Essex Westford School District is devoted to more than ensuring safe and healthy learning environments in our schools: we are committed to providing the best in nutrition and overall wellness education for students of all ages, their families, and the surrounding community.
In 2018, we embarked on a mission: to involve our community in discussions and conversations around crucial elements of wellness. To bolster our District's existing policy, we began involving families in our food and nutrition planning for cafeteria menus and started to incorporate the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model into our operations. This Nutrition Advisory Group has continued to meet and led to the creation of task forces centered on the priorities established from the initial meeting in November 2018.
