Healthier Meals For Our Children
We, parents and caregivers of children attending the JCC Early Childhood Education Programs are signing this petition to offer better, healthier and more diverse food choices for our children.
While the school's educational program, staff and facilities are of excellent quality, the food choices offered are dramatically subpar our expectations and standards for our children.
We find the lunch school menu to be un-healthy and out-dated. The food items offered are often fried,lacking nutritional balance and diversity or based on substitute/inferior ingredients.
Other schools, including the public schools in Tenafly are offering much healthier and diverse choices and we believe the JCC could do that as well.
A new vendor consideration or a drastic menu change from the JCC Cafeteria are expected and parents representatives will gladly help advise and facilitate this change in partnership with the management.
