The Boeing Center for Children's Wellness (The Lean Team)
Mission: Our mission is to reduce childhood Obesity in the State of S.C. by creating healthier school environments through innovative wellness initiatives.
School Lunch Initiatives
The Lean Team enjoys a wonderful working partnership with the CCSD Food Service Department. Our staff of nutritionists and dietitians are always finding new ways to promote and support nutritious changes to school food offerings, such as through:
- Incorporating healthy, kid approved recipes through the creation of an in-house recipe contest and coordinating entry into a national recipe challenge.
- Creating nutrition facts posters that outline the nutritional value of all school lunch menu and a la carte food items, helping students and staff to make educated choices at meal times
- Sponsoring summer culinary training courses for school food service professionals in partnership with the Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College and other local partners.
