Key Facts about School Meals in North Carolina

School Meal Challenge 

North Carolina PTA created School Meal Challenge events to educate parents and community members on the current realities of school meals. In April 2018 we commenced the first event with four Raleigh-based chefs. We provided them with a $2.00 budget and the nutritional guidelines and asked them to create a nutritious, tasty, and compliant meal that could be replicated by school nutrition directors. Learn more about this event here.

Our second School Meal Challenge event took place on September 25, 2019 in Greensboro. We were excited to welcome state and community leaders as we move the discussion forward on school meal nutrition. Check out our video from the event!
