In September 2014, our office, the Colorado Department of Education Office of School Nutrition, was awarded a Team Nutrition Training Grant from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to implement statewide school wellness training.

Local educational agencies (LEAs) that participate in the National School Lunch Program or other federal child nutrition programs are required to establish school wellness policies for all schools under their jurisdiction.
